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.
