Banksy Brexit mural painted over

A Brexit-themed Banksy mural in England has been covered up with white paint.

The artwork appeared on a former amusements arcade near Dover's busy ferry terminal in May 2017 where it could be seen by lots of passing motorists.

It showed an EU flag with a workman chipping away one of the stars, symbolising Britain leaving the EU.

The mural had been covered up last month and workmen had assembled scaffolding over it.

A local MP Charlie Elphicke has spoken out about its disappearance, saying a group called Historic England should "hang their heads in shame" for not protecting the piece.

The artwork had been valued at £1m in July.
