FURIOUS residents have taken to vandalism to show their opposition to a development in a conservation area.

Bexley council approved plans to sell off the former St Mary's Old Peoples Home in Vicarage Road, Bexley, on February 28 to build 29 homes.

However, The Purelake Group's signage outside the site has since be daubed with the word 'scum', while residents say another sign has disappeared.

When the matter first came before the planning board last November, 137 residents signed a petition against the development.

Saundra Mitchell, of North Cray Road, Bexley, said: "We feel that the residents' interests have been ignored."

A spokesman for Bexley council said: "The matter was fully debated with public speaking by local residents and by ward councillors.
