Migrants charge people to view mural of Apple founder

Migrants in Calais are charging people to view a mural of Apple founder Steve Jobs by elusive street artist Banksy.

The work depicts Jobs in his trademark black turtleneck jumper carrying an early model of his Apple computer and with a black bin bag slung over his shoulder.

The portrait has appeared on a graffiti-littered concrete wall on the outskirts of The Jungle camp where 6,000 migrants from countries including Syria, Afghanistan and Eritrea are based.

The piece has gained such popularity in the area, close to the Port of Calais, that migrants have covered it up with a blanket and are charging people to view it.

Steve Jobs was the son of a migrant from Syria.
