A piece of street art in Bristol that was this week confirmed as being by Banksy has been vandalised.
A picture shared on social media showed “BCC wankers” scrawled across the artwork, which shows a young girl firing a slingshot filled with flowers.
The artwork appeared on a rented home owned by Edwin Simons. His daughter, Kelly Woodruff, found out about it after being tagged in a Facebook post. She had said on Friday that she was concerned the artwork might be damaged by Storm Dennis.
One local resident who spotted the vandalism said: “It’s a real shame, but it was always going to happen, unfortunately.”
