British graffiti artist Banksy has unveiled his latest artwork as New York police continue to track him down for "defacing" public property.
The artist sold work worth £20,000 for £38 from a stall in Central Park in the latest stunt in his month long 'live exhibition' in the city.
Locals in Harringay have been protesting against the sale of a Banksy which was taken from the wall of Poundland in Wood Green.
Street artists have repainted the space left by the removal of the Banksy art work "Slave Labour".
These pictures, taken by the Turnpike Art Group, show the new mural and a rat which is believed to be by Banksy.
The art group said that the mysterious artist who painted the rat had been so rushed in their work that they had left behind part of the stencil.
The photographer removed the stencil but said it is "unlikely to end up in a Miami auction house"
A Banksy mural, which was removed from the side of a Poundland store in North London last week, has been withdrawn from an auction.
The auction of the Banksy artwork "Slave Labour" has started at a Miami auction house.
The opening bid was for $400,000.
The auction of the Banksy painting "Slave Labour" is due to get under way at a Miami auction house.
The work is estimated to make between $500,000-$700,000 by Fine Art Auctions Miami.
It is the 6th lot of 117 items up for auction.
Frederic Thut, an auctioneer with Fine Art Auctions in Miami has called on campaigners to prove their claims that the Banksy art work 'Slave Labour' was taken illegally from a wall in Wood Green.
Mr Thut said that the company would not sell the controversial art work if the community could prove it was stolen.
We heard that some people in England are complaining that the work has been stolen. That is completely incorrect because the work was painted on a private wall and the owner of a private wall can do whatever he wants with his own wall. Maybe the public thinks they own something, but in fact the only owner is the owner of the wall.

We have been contacted by some authorities, and we asked them to give us the proof that this work is illegal to sell. As soon as they do that, we will not sell it because we do not have the right to sell illegally. We are a legal company, and we are proving our responsibility as much as we can. We will not sell this work if there is any legal problem with it.
A mural, believed to be the work of graffiti artist Banksy, that was removed from a wall in North London in mysterious circumstances could reach more than £450,000 when it is auctioned in Miami tonight.
The work, which shows a young boy hunched over a sewing machine making Union Jack bunting, appeared on the wall in Wood Green last May, just before the Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
But the mural by arguably the world's most famous graffiti artist disappeared last weekend and is now being sold thousands of miles away in Miami, despite pleas from people back in Wood Green upset by its disappearance.
Yesterday a new work appeared at the site, in Banksy style, showing a rat holding a card with the word 'why?' written on it.
