Local people in Hampshire claim the county council is not doing enough to stop four wheel drive vehicles tearing up the countryside, BBC Radio Four's Today programme reported this morning.

Ros Mills of Hampshire Ways, an organisation campaigning against 4WD vehicles, said they do enormous amount of damage to woodland tracks, making them dangerous for ramblers and horses.

Hampshire CC has been too quick to reclassify footpaths and bridle paths as roads for vehicles, she told Today.

Inquiries have been set up when parishes object to 4WD routes, but the county council has not produced good evidence backing its backing its decisions to reclassify these paths, she said.
