Local people despair at the useless politicians who get voted in for 3-5 years, then enclose green spaces, close swimming baths and sell off schools and playing fields. These are all sold to private developers, who are only there to make money for their shareholders, not our local community.
People broke into the large digger using cutters and doused the cab, electronics and computer in paraffin. Then standing back, threw in the spark. Damage has been estimated at up to £100,000.
Hopefully insurance companies and contractors get the message. Developers who destroy our community green spaces, close footpaths and kill our trees, are not welcome.
It is sad that new diggers only take around a month to build, mature trees take a life time.
