Campaigners from the radical eco campaign group Just Stop Oil have been accused of ‘hypocrisy at its finest’ after trashing a farmer’s hedgerow with ‘polluting’ plastic waste. 

Charles Goadby was left furious after finding piles of sleeping bags, plastic bottles, plastic chairs and plastic bags full of rubbish that had been left on his land by protesters trying to tunnel under a road by the Kingsbury Oil Terminal in Warwickshire.  

The farmer raged at the ‘absolute mess’ left by the group, which is known for stunts such as blocking roads, vandalising petrol stations and locking themselves to goalposts at Premier League games. 

The piles of plastic waste also raised eyebrows given plastic is made using fossil fuels such as oil and natural gas – which Just Stop Oil say are ‘killing us’.

In a video shared online, Mr Goadby said: ‘All this c*** has been left here by the Just Stop Oil campaigners. 

‘So what I want to know from someone senior at Just Stop Oil – how can you  justify this?

‘People dumping c*** over our British countryside, polluting it, destroying our countryside and putting our wildlife at risk with rubbish. How can you justify this and tell me this is acceptable?’ 

The group were immediately accused of hypocrisy by social media users.   

Mr Goadby also pointed out several entrances to tunnels that had been filled in with concrete by the authorities to stop activists tunneling under the road. 

Just Stop Oil said the rubbish was most likely left during protests in August.  

On August 23, the group shared photos of activists in a tunnel near Kingsbury. 

Stephanie Aylett, Sean Irish and Callum Goode tunneled under Piccadilly Way, near the Kingsbury oil terminal, on August 2. It is not clear if the activists pictured in the tunnel were the same ones who left the rubbish described by Mr Goadby. 

Stephanie said she was struggling to breathe because of her severe asthma in the dust-filled confined space. 

She said: ‘I’ve spent the last five hours trying to get rubble out of the tunnel… it’s become increasingly difficult to be down here.

‘I’m really struggling to breathe, probably because I’ve got really severe asthma but we don’t really have much of a choice to be here if I want to save my two children’s futures. So I’m having to just power through and go up for air, go near to the end as much as I can.’

She added: ‘It’s so horrible down here – and we’ve had to bring everything into the tunnel because of the scare we had earlier. So half our tunnel is currently filled with belongings and water and supplies and food which will keep us going but it’s making it very difficult to move.’

Several other protesters also blocked roads by the terminal. 

In April, the group boasted that four people had been involved in occupying two tunnels near the Kingsbury oil terminal, blocking access to the site

A spokesman from the Countryside Alliance said: “ This is incredibly appalling and selfish behaviour. This appears to be fly-tipping which is illegal. 

‘It is incredibly damaging to the natural environment and there can never be any excuse for it. 

‘Farmers are often left to deal with the devastating impact of fly-tipping, usually at a cost to themselves. 

‘If you are visiting the countryside, please ensure you correctly dispose of your rubbish and if you are unable to find a bin, take the rubbish home to bin there. ”  

Just Stop Oil told MailOnline: ‘The farmer is right to be angry, Just Stop Oil is sorry that the site was not clean up, this is now being organised. 

‘The area should have been cleaned, so that the land, people and wildlife are protected.’

Earlier this month, Just Stop Oil activists who occupied a tunnel for 13 days under a road near to an oil terminal in Essex were eventually arrested.

The three men left the tunnel in Grays at around 3:45pm this afternoon after claiming they had ‘reached their objective’ and were immediately detained by Essex Police.

In a video from the 16 metre tunnel, one protestor boasted about causing massive disruption to the flow of oil and being mentioned by Boris Johnson and Priti Patel.

The man said they repeatedly told Essex Police the road to the oil terminal is unsafe and revealed the group managed to break through to the surface of the road above.

Essex Police’s Chief Constable acknowledged that climate change is a concern in a statement on Friday but said that it cannot justify actions that ‘seriously disrupt’ and ‘endanger’ the lives of others.
