Council orders destruction of anti-CCTV art

Westminster City Council have ordered the destruction of a work of art which is critical of CCTV.

The owners of the mural, entitled "One Nation Under CCTV", by street artist 'Banksy', have been ordered by Westminster City Council to remove the work of art.

The mural has the words "One Nation Under CCTV" stencilled above two painted people.

One appears to be a child in a red hooded top apparently painting the words, while a police officer holding a camera and a brown dog look on.

The mural is painted on the wall of a building shared by Royal Mail and another business.

On Thursday a Banksy oil canvas, entitled Tesco Value Tomato Soup, was sold for £117,600 by auction house Bonhams.
