Shocking footage of hunt saboteurs being ambushed on a country lane by thugs ‘wielding a hammer’ has emerged.

Members of the North Cambs Hunt Sabs were driving to a farm in Smeeton Westerby, Leicestershire, to make sure a hunt was being carried out legally, according to Cambridgeshire Live.

Dash cam footage shows the saboteurs’ vehicle driving along a country lane on November 24 at around 3pm before encountering a pick-up truck that has blocked the path ahead with two men standing in front of it.

Suddenly two men can be seen charging down the road toward their car. One of them, wearing a hi-vis yellow jacket, waves a hammer. 

He can be seen launching the object at the vehicle as the driver tries to reverse away from the vicious attack.

And the men continue to chase after the saboteurs’ vehicle before they manage to drive off quickly.

During the attack, the window of the saboteurs’ vehicle was smashed by the head of the hammer.

The organisation posted about the unsettling incident on their Facebook page.

They said: ‘This attack with a weapon was the result of a co-ordinated ambush where pickup trucks blocked the way in front of and behind our car on a single lane country road.

‘The suspect shown was part of a group of at least three men who waited until the majority of sabs were well away from the vehicle, before chasing and attacking our outnumbered lady driver.’
