Eco-vandals slash tyres on driver's SUV branding it a 'gas guzzler' - even ... trends now

Eco-vandals have slashed the tyres on a SUV and accused the owner of harming the environment with his 'gas guzzler', even though the vehicle is fully electric.

The anonymous driver had his electric DS 3 targeted by a group calling themselves Reclaim Our Communities on Tuesday. 

The activists, who deflated the tyres of more than 100 SUVs and 4x4s in Bristol last October, made this latest attack on the grounds that his 'gas guzzler kills'.

While also allegedly leaving lentils in the valve caps in their bid to rid the roads of SUVs.

The image shared in this latest incident showed the tyre burst open beyond repair, with liquid leaking out of the gashes made in the rubber.
