ACTIVISTS from a West Hampstead based environmental group have dumped a pile of horse manure in Jeremy Clarkson's garden.

Seven members of Climate Rush deposited the load on the front lawn of Clarkson's house in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire at 11am this morning.

The posse, dressed as suffragettes parked up their van, which appropriately runs on chip-fat oil, also un furled a banner which read 'This is what you're landing us in' in reference to Clarkson's apparently healthy personal carbon emissions rates.

The group also accuses him of having a 'blasé attitude towards climate change'.

Tamsin Omond, 24, spokesperson for the group said: "I love Jeremy. I love fast cars. I love progress. But I learnt some things and those things terrify me. I learnt that climate change will make my future unrecognisable. I know that I'll not have the same choices that Jeremy has now. If we keep on loving the fossil-fuelled lifestyle then by the time I hit 49 the world will be too busy coping with the impact of climate change to bother about how big an engine is possible. I'm the biggest libertarian of them all - I'm dumping dung at Clarkson's gates so he might understand that his attitude will land us all in the shit.
