New Banksy Work Goes Up Only To Be Promptly Removed

Authorities in southern England were embarrassed but defensive Thursday after telling workers to destroy a mural they later realized was created by Banksy.

The latest piece, which featured pigeons carrying anti-immigration banners, appeared at Clacton-on-Sea, the site of a special election next week featuring the anti-immigration U.K. Independence Party. Tendring Council spokesman Nigel Brown said that the mural was chemically removed from the wall after complaints that it was racist.
