A couple hoping for a cheeky quickie in a farmer’s field ended up staying longer than they planned after their car got bogged down and had to be towed out.
The rustic rompers got into bother after their Ford Focus got stranded in a ploughed field near Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire.
It tuned out to be an expensive interlude too. The furious farmer fined the couple £50 and the driver had to call a local firm, Campbells Recovery to haul the stranded Focus out.
Instead of giving the recovery driver an exact location he just advised them to look for the "only Ford Focus growing in the field".
A sequence of images taken at the time shows the blue car stranded in the middle of the muddy field.
Campbells Recovery's truck sits at the edge of the land, ready to rescue the red-faced couple.
One shot shows the woman sitting looking rather sheepish in the passenger's seat as a face mask dangles from the rear view mirror.
Another shows her companion searching in the boot for a tow line.
The images were uploaded to Facebook by Campbells Recovery on Sunday, who said: "Probably one of the funniest call outs we have had in a while, customer calls and says he has a dilemma.
"He pulled into a field to s*** a bird last night and was woken this morning by an angry farmer who wanted him off his land.
"But, realised he was stuck, when I asked for a live location he said you can't miss me. I'm the only Ford Focus growing in the field.
"Expensive …as he had to pay the farmer £50 for kipping in his field so he wouldn't call the police and then the recovery fee.
"P.S just to clarify no wives/girlfriends were harmed by this post.. The lad gives no f***s about us putting this up."
The post has had social media users in stitches.
