Banksy mural vanishes from London, appears at US auction

A Banksy mural painted just before the Diamond Jubilee last year has vanished from a London street and been listed for sale at a US auction site.

The image, which shows a young boy hunched over a sewing machine making Union Jack bunting, disappeared from the side of a Poundland shop last week.

It is now for sale in Miami, with an estimate of 320,000 - 452,000.


The owners of the property have been traced, and Haringey council is trying to contact them to establish whether the work was taken legitimately.

Residents are also organising an email campaign, asking the auction company to abandon the sale.
