Some time last year I took a photo of a painting on the wall of one of the hotels in Belgrave Rd and posted it under the Tittle Graffiti, Art or Banksy. I do believe it was the first time this piece of work had been published anywhere. Banksy hasn't actually claimed to be the painter but the image is on his web site.
A couple of weeks ago the Herald Express, our local paper, carried an item about the damage done to this wall art. The Hotel owner had done his best to protect the picture, covering it with glass in a strong wooden frame but some not nice person or persons unknown came along one dark night and poured paint remover over part of the picture. Not sure why.
