Watch: Vivienne Westwood takes tank to David Cameron’s house

Dame Viv got behind the wheel of a heavy-duty military vehicle to let the prime minister know what she thinks about his fracking plans

Vivienne Westwood has long been a campaigner against fracking, the process of drilling down into the earth for shale gas. Many environmentalists believe fracking causes earth tremors and pollution, so they’re calling on the government to stop drilling.

What do you do if you feel like your voice isn’t being heard? If you’re revered fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, you drive an enormous white tank to the prime minister’s house looking absolutely made up about it.

Dame Viv regularly lends her voice to environmental campaigns – last month, she launched "Save the Arctic" along with Kate MossMaisie Williams and Naomi Campbell. But while you should check that out, just get on with looking at Vivienne Westwood fucking bossing it in a tank.
