A GIANT mural which appeared on a wall in Westward Ho! opposing plans for a new Tesco store has been covered over.

The artwork by renowned street artist Mau Mau, titled Invasion of the Supermarkets, depicted a movie-like scene with slogans such as ‘very little helps’.

It first appeared completed on September 9, but less than a month later has been covered with a coat of white paint.

The painting was produced over the tip of an existing mural which was painted to mark the turn of the millennium.

The Gazette has received unconfirmed reports that another mural has been commissioned to replace the one opposing Tesco.
