Climate campaign dumps on Clarkson.

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

The activists from environmental group Climate Rush unloaded 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 "blas 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 Clarkson's home as part of their month-long horse-andcart road show around the south west to raise awareness of climate issues.

The group's spokeswoman, Tamsin Omond, 24, said: "I'm dumping dung at Clarkson's gates so he might understand that his attitude will land us all in the s***."
