Eco group dumps manure on Jeremy Clarkson's home lawn

Climate campaigners have dumped horse manure on TV presenter Jeremy Clarkson's front lawn in protest against his views on global warming.

The activists from environmental group Climate Rush unloaded the bag-loads of manure at his home in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, with a banner which read, "This is what you're landing us in".

The campaigners said they had targeted the Top Gear presenter for his "blase attitude to climate change", including a recent trip driving to the Arctic which they claim emitted an estimated 1.7 tonnes of carbon.

The seven female protesters, dressed as suffragettes, made the stop outside Mr Clarkson's home as part of their month-long horse-and-cart road show around the south west of England to raise awareness of climate issues.

The group's mouthpiece, Tamsin Omond, 24, said: "I love Jeremy, I love fast cars, I love progress, but I've learnt some things and those things terrify me.

"I learnt that climate change will make my future unrecognisable. I know I'll not have the same choices that Jeremy has now.
