Banksy mural fiasco

Made in london // Sold in US

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 known now ,  that it is now for sale in Miami, with an estimate of £320,000 - £452,000.
"Residents have been really shocked and really astonished," .
Residents say "Banksy gave that piece of art to our community, and people came from all over London to see it.
Residents are angry  that a "piece of art that was given freely has been taken away from them and sold for an enormous profit".
