Untold truths.

Good example of how even when things are done right they can be portrayed in a very negative light by the omission of some of the facts.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-nort ... s-30061717
Note:

First photo grass removal by vehicle with road tyres and to the right impressions made by another vehicle with suitable tyres as fitted to the Land Rover shown in the later picture showing the film crew.

Second photo flag stones either side of the style to prevent those walkers showing what damage foot traffic would cause at the same spot.

Third photo (greatly cropped compared to the original which you can view here http://ielt9.ukhillwalking.com/articles ... um=twitter ) evidence of a tracked vehicle, don't think Land Rover make one of those at present.

I know that I am biased, aren't we all to some extent, but I can't help feeling that if the landowner had legitimately arranged a shoot or a horse trial up there then it would'nt have made a BBC news story.
