4x4 safely retrieved from the top of Snowdon
In case anyone was wondering, the 4x4 that a very silly man drove up Snowdon a few days ago has been safely brought down on the railway. It's just as well the there is a railway to the summit or I don't know how they would have got it down.

Video and more details here...

I hope there's no chance of them giving it back to him? I seem to recall he's been banned...

I don't know whether the car will be confiscated or not. They haven't said yet, but he's due in court in about a week's time.

I agree. Silly people do some really silly things sometimes.

I hope the police have thought to check just what else is on this moron's 50 things to do list...

He was asked that in an interview on the BBC website. He said that as this disaster had cost so much money, he was scrapping the rest of the list! Very wise, I say.

(See the first 30 seconds of this video clip.)

Silly fool...

(I have a query: tried setting up my own X-post footer on DW but it isn't working. Any tips?)

I see that your latest post had a footer, so I assume you worked it out?

Yes, but I couldn't see how to create a small font, as you & several other people have done.

What a tosspot!

I hope they bill him for the transportation costs.

Incidentally, in this day and age of soaring fuel costs, how can an out-of-work vehicle recovery technician afford to drive a 4 x 4 from Gloucestershire to the summit of Snowdon???
