Seaton resident accuses Tesco of vandalism.

Seaton has been vandalised!

Trees, hedges and shrubs all fell victim to a chainsaw as Tesco started clearing their land.

It’s disgraceful.

Hundreds of birds made their home for years in the hedges and trees Tesco saw fit to remove.

Why? To put up an ugly, big fence.

Why can’t this supermarket get it through their heads that they are not wanted in Seaton and clear off?

East Devon District Council is as much to blame as it went against the majority of residents to allow this to happen.

Where are the conservationists when you need them?

I feel sick at this carnage.
