Powys Farmer Prosecuted using Video evidence

Two 4x4s approached a farmyard, driving along an unclassified road shown on the List of Streets as continuing through the farmyard. The second vehicle carried a Dash Cam.

As the first vehicle entered the farmyard, a man, believed to be the occupant, ran across to it and threatened to smash the windscreen of the vehicle with a large piece of timber several feet long.

He was fortunately restrained by his female partner who was nearby at the time unloading a car.

The incident was recorded on the dashcam of the second vehicle and eventually reported to the Police.

With the video evidence and two statements, the Police proceeded to prosecute and the man was given a suspended sentence and fined.
