The article reports that farmers who helping to set up the Glendale Show in Northumberland, England have been reprimanded by Great Britain HM Revenue and Customs for using red diesel in their tractors. The farmers who were moving equipment around for the show were told by inspectors that the diesel in their tractors was not being used for agricultural purposes. In response, show organizers borrowed a tractor and fill it with standard diesel.
