John Abbott said: “It should be cleaned off and then photographed and kept, as Banksy is not a man without talent.”

Locals have been taking pictures of the mural and praising ‘genius’ Banksy,  But the council have expressed a desire to clean the piece away.  Social media users have been sharing photos of the piece after it appeared on Scott Street Bridge.  One Instagram user said: “Thank you for inspiring us all”, while others praised Banksy as a “genius”.   Banksy first burst into prominence in the early 90s as a graffiti artist whose works highlighted corruption and inequality in society.  His work was spotted around the south of England, including in London, Brighton and Bristol.  He has never been unmasked, and it is believed his refusal to reveal himself started as a way of avoiding prosecution for vandalism.
