UKIP councillor Steven Hodge said: “We have received several complaints about this incident which was lawless, like something from the Wild West.
"Tesco staff were instructed not to challenge them.
"It seems it is one rule for us and other for the travellers.”Oh, you are a wag!
Independent councillor Kerry Smith added: “Apparently the staff were threatened by the main leader of the traveller group not to get them arrested or they would trash the store. The staff then emptied many of the shelves because they were walking in an out and taking what they wanted, as well as using the toilets like a washroom.
“Yesterday afternoon I contacted the Police Crime and Fire commissioner of Essex, to get his officers out and get them arrested for public order offences.”*wipes away tear of mirth* Good one! Got any more?
