Cars become stuck in field near Old Malton
8:09am Tuesday 4th September 2012 in News
TWO cars have become stranded in a field in North Yorkshire.
The cars were found stuck near the A64 in Old Malton at about 9.25am on Sunday. They will stay there until the field dries out enough for them to be moved, which is likely to be in about a week’s time.
A spokesman for North Yorkshire Police said the car owners, local men aged 19 and 20, were issued with warnings for antisocial use of vehicles.
Coun Martin Dales, a Malton Town councillor who lives in Old Malton, said there had problems locally with irresponsible young drivers.
He said: “The town is fed up with mainly young drivers who tear around the town as if it were a Formula One race track.
“It is to be hoped that those responsible for damaging the fields in Old Malton will be brought to justice as it is grossly unfair for the farmers who are having a difficult enough time harvesting and drilling to have such unnecessary distractions.”
