MUCK-spreaders got their revenge on a badly parked van — coating it in slurry.
The Transit was left across a farmyard entrance while the driver went for a pint.
It blocked a 20-ton tanker, and the spreaders contacted the local boozer in a bid to track him down.
But when he failed to show, they emptied their load over it.
The farmer, who did not want to be named, said: “We have had a lot of problems with parking.
"On this occasion, it was pretty obstructive. The entry is only about 10ft wide and the slurry tankers couldn’t turn in.
“Apparently the lads doing the spreading contacted the pub and warned them but the van owner later claimed he didn’t recognise his own registration number when they called it out.”
However, it all ended amicably, with the farmer in Wigston, Leics, adding: “He didn’t realise he was blocking the entrance to the field. He came back to find his van covered. He admitted he was totally in the wrong.
“They hosed his van down and everyone had a laugh. Then they went back to the pub and he put money behind the bar and bought the lads a drink.”
Retired local builder Dougie Mason, 64, who saw the mucky van on Saturday, said: “It was a funny incident, and no harm was done, although it would’ve been a different story if it was a convertible.”
It comes a fortnight after the Sun revealed a farmworker used a telehandler to haul a Vauxhall Corsa out of the way after daytrippers left it in the entrance to a yard.
The driver kicked out to stop the farmer shoving the car on the main road in Newbiggin, Co Durham.
