Farmer crushed by tractor
UK FARMER is seriously ill after being crushed by a tractor.
'Jan McCourt whose Northfield Farm in Cold Overton is nationally renowned for the quality of its meat, was airlifted to hospital in agony and is awaiting surgery. Farm spokesman Jo Allen said Jan had broken his pelvis and suffered internal bruising. "He is on an intravenous drip," she added. "Surgeons have delayed an operation until today because he is still in trauma." Jan, 47, earned national headlines 10 years ago when he gave up his job as a City stockbroker to run the 70-acre "rare breed" farm at Cold Overton, where the stock includes Dexter cattle and Gloucester Old Spot pigs.'
