Very sorry to read this Toby.

Sadly deposits are rarely binding and even formal lock out contracts can be next to useless.

The timing you describe sounds as if the other buyer could have been proceeding for sometime,maybe even before you paid the deposit.

Not that it will you much good if contracts have been exchanged elsewhere, but the sellers solicitor has a duty to inform the buyers firm when a second contract is sent out to another buyer or if one was already in place. Did this happen I wonder.

It is possible the agent didn't know the score but I think it unlikely and if they did know they should have insisted the developer gave you the opportunity to match the price and exchange or at the very least met your legal costs.

An agent lives or dies on their reputation, a small time developer can just walk away I am sorry to say.
