An American artist has paid $730,000 US dollars (£561,000) for an artwork by Bristol artist Banksy painted on the side of a North London Poundland - then vowed to whitewash it.
Slave Labour depicts a young child on his knees at a sewing machine, producing a string of Union Jack bunting.
It was bought by Ron English at Julien's Auctions in Los Angeles on Wednesday who revealed he plans to whitewash it in protest against street art being bought and sold.
I'm going to paint it white again, I'm done. This is a blow for street art. It shouldn't be bought and sold. "I'm going to paint over it and just include it in one of the walls in my house. We're tired of people stealing our stuff off the streets and re-selling it so I'm just going to buy everything I can get my hands on and whitewash it.
