Banksy says Bristol boys' club can keep Mobile Lovers

The artist Banksy has said that his disputed Mobile Lovers piece should be kept by a Bristol youth club.

The piece, showing a couple embracing while checking their mobile phones, was taken from a council-owned wall by the club's leader, Dennis Stinchcombe, shortly after it appeared.

It was later moved by police and taken to Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery.

A note from Banksy says he is happy for the club to do what it feels is right with the piece.

Sarah-Jane Bungay reports.
