Here is a look at some of the other reactions:
Ah don’t worry, what they charged the house owner to clear the rubbish will pay the fine 🙂 Personally I would have lined them up and have the Firearms Team get some live practise in….. or is that a bit OTT?— Olly1973 (@Olly19731) March 29, 2021
Couldn't you charge the driver with anything, after they'd misused an emergency refuge area? Driving without Due Care perhaps?— paul smith (@6ettinold) March 28, 2021
Problem is they will do it again. I’d give them all community service for one wk litter picking also look at getting prisoners out picking shit up where to soft.— Winston of kent (@winstonofkent1) March 28, 2021
