The MoD found a quad bike left by illegal off-roaders on Salisbury Plain, and reacted in the best possible way; by crushing it with a terrier.

Operation Aston, in partnership with Wiltshire Council, will show no mercy when dealing with trespassers on the military training ground.

The 147 square mile area has been described as a 'hotspot' for off-road activity 

The Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) tweeted that it had “exercised” its “right to crush it”.  

The operation was organised after the MoD said there had been a “massive increase in off-roaders on motorcycles and 4X4 vehicles” intruding on MoD land “which was both dangerous and illegal”.

The area is restricted to the public, with some areas completely cordoned off due to the nature of the activities the army practice there. 

To make sure that this was a complete write-off, it gets crushed several times, ensuring it is reduced to scrap.

Perhaps the off-roaders will now think twice before taking a ride on Salisbury Plain!
