A Banksy mural at the centre of a controversial auction was withdrawn from sale at the 11th hour.
Slave Labour, which shows a young boy hunched over a sewing machine making Union Jack bunting, appeared on a wall in Wood Green, north London, last May, just before the Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
It disappeared from the side of the Poundland store last weekend and was due to be auctioned thousands of miles away in Miami last night, where it was expected to sell for up to £450,000.
But a spokesman for auction house Fine Art Auctions Miami (FAAM) confirmed that Slave Labour and Wet Dog, a second Banksy painting listed, had been withdrawn from sale. No reason was given.
"It's a true credit to the community that their campaigning appears to have helped to stop the sale of this artwork from going ahead.
We will continue to explore all options to bring back Banksy to the community where it belongs."
Locals in Harringay have been protesting against the sale of a Banksy which was taken from the wall of Poundland in Wood Green.
It appears graffiti artist Banksy has had the final word after a piece of his artwork was ripped from a wall in a London street.
A painting by street artist Banksy which was ripped from a wall in Wood Green earlier this month goes on sale in Miami at the weekend.
