These pictures were sent in by Richard Powell from Reading University.
Richard was home for the weekend to help his Dad cart sugar beet near Ross-on-Wye in Herefordshire.
On the first load after lunch Richard says he swung out to go round a corner when the trailer – which was fully loaded with 15 tonnes of sugar beet – slid off the track and tipped over.
As can be seen from the photos the conditions were appallingly wet!
Nobody was injured and there was only slight damage to the trailer which was turned back-over and continued as normal for the remainder of the day.
The tractor stayed upright although one rear wheel was off the ground.
The beet was recovered later that day… nice!
