Farmer cleared of selfish tractor-driving
NORTH Yorkshire farmer Ian Voakes, 50, of Killinghall, was cleared of driving his tractor “without reasonable consideration” at Harrogate Magistrates Court.
He had allegedly caused a queue of 100 vehicles by driving his tractor at 15-20mph. But he told magistrates he had pulled over to let traffic pass on the A59.
