A muck tractor and trailer has dumped its full load on the steps of Derby Crown Court this morning.<br />
<br />
The driver left his filthy cargo spread out over the stairs and pathway to the court house in an apparent protest against “a severely flawed judicial system”, according to a printed sign left in his cab.<br />
<br />
It read: “ What a shame!!! What a shame to have to resort to this. Today is a personal protest against the severely flawed judicial system that has consistently failed to listen to simple truth and reason. Sorry for any inconvenience caused (to the general public)”<br />
<br />
David Carter from Derby was passing by on his bike when it happened: “He was spreading the muck all over the steps when I went past, it was quite a mess. I’d love to know why he felt he had to resort to such a measure, but he didn't want to say anything to me.”<br />
<br />
Andrew Simpson, from Derby, saw it and said: “I wondered what what going on when I saw the tractor and trailer stop outside the court so I decided to stay and see what happened. He didn't say why he was doing it, but said there was a note in his tractor cab that explained it. Fair play to the chap - he was fed up and he got his message across.”<br />
<br />
Julie Adams from Sinfin said: “There was an awful lot when he had just done it, but it’s being cleaned up quickly. What a mess. But thank goodness it wasn’t manure, that would have been horrid.”<br />
