Secret Service agents take to the Fermanagh fields to protect President Obama – in brand new tractors
Local farmers laugh at attempts to disguise themselves in sparkling vehicles
Locals are laughing at British and American Secret Service attempts to disguise themselves as farmers around the G8 summit – in sparkling new tractors.
The Irish Sun reports on the Secret Service bid to immerse themselves in the local community in Fermanagh by posing as farmers.
But locals have copped onto the ruse and say they can spot the agents miles away thanks to their brand new tractors.
The report says the British service bought a fleet of two tractors ahead of the two day summit at the Lough Erne hotel.
Locals near the five star resort have told the paper it will not take any potential terrorists long to spot the spooks thanks to their brand new tractors.
One local farmer said: “They reckon the vehicles will let them patrol the fields around the hotel unnoticed but they’ll stick out like sore thumbs.
“It’s comedy gold really, like something out of Father Ted.”
The report adds that more than 200 US Secret Service agents - with special diplomatic immunity to shoot anyone they suspect of being a threat - will protect President Obama during his visit to Co Fermanagh.
Special Forces units from the US Navy Seals will patrol the waters of Lough Erne while a six-doctor medical crew will also accompany the President on his visit to the North.
British SAS troops will also be on site to guard PM David Cameron, Russia’s Vladimir Putin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and France’s Francois Hollande along with other world leaders.
Around 4,000 police officers have been drafted in from across the UK to bolster the 5,000 cops from Northern Ireland on duty.
