Hoardings put up by developers around a controversial site in Henfield have been attacked by vandals.

Messages targeting developers looking to build homes in the village have been painted on the wooden boards surrounding the northern edge of Sandgate Nursery, in West End Lane.

The hoardings were put up by Stonegate Homes and Littleworth Properties to ‘prevent unlawful public access’ after the developers claim the area represented a ‘health and safety risk’.

Residents made a desperate plea to remove them, branding them a ‘danger and an eyesore’.

This week West Sussex County Council confirmed a lease had been issued for the boards to be erected, but that had since been revoked.
