    Fines for polluting the water

    Have you seen this article?

    I guess this is why HSE have suggested bunded stores are recommended on the farm.
    I understand that the HSE are cracking down on the way you store your pesticides.

    What's the history for you to say that?

    This is a truly shocking situation. A sort of hero to zero in one move.
    My father used to remark that generally farmers working good land suffered the rags to riches to rags senerio over 3 generations. This poor chap did it in 10 years.
    I note that the unsecured creditors will get sfa.
    IMO 2 people should get pillored for this, firstly the farmer (as I think the 73 unsecured creditors were defrauded) and perhaps more importantly the arse at the Clydesdale bank who lent this money. (one should remember ofcourse that the bank guy would profit by a commission payment/bonus on the monies lent).
    Finally I would also say that the valuation/asking price quoted is a wee bit high and may not be realised under current conditions.
    But if you have the cash then fill your boots as these farms are cracking.
