The leftie group used dark cloth to create the symbol which they placed on the chalk horse.

It comes after the RAF spearheaded a huge restoration project in August when hundreds of children and their parents re-chalked the world famous monument.

The landmark in the Pewsey Vale was spread with 46 tonnes of pristine chalk after Molly Sutherland, 11, was helped by dad Rob to make the dream become a reality.

Now her dad said his daughter and the other children were devastated by the Extinction Rebellion stunt.

Another local Graham Newland added: “Besides disrespecting the children who they claim to act for and angering them and the community who lovingly restored this fragile precious chalk environment these so called protectors of the planet have done their bit to damage it.

“The chalk is clearly poisoned with chemicals and damaged today as a direct result of their actions.

“Shows they are either stupid or lying when they said no damage would be caused.”
