Some of the damage done to the land

“This was at Glutton Bridge near Buxton where a group of drivers had fun tearing down some farmland so if anyone has any other pictures of this land where their number plates can be read, we would love to hear from you so that we can continue to pursue them.

“Make up your own mind about the one who clearly misjudged the conditions, the capabilities of their vehicle and their own driving skills (or her, of course!). Once the water levels drop, it will be interesting to see what kind of salvage operation the owner will come up with.

Anyone with information can contact the team via the non-emergency number 101.
