The local Trades Union Congress in Haringey has attacked plans for a Banksy mural which first appeared on a wall in the borough to go up for auction in Covent Garden next month.

The Slave Labour Banksy belongs to the people of Haringey not to a wealthy private client. We want the sale stopped and the Banksy back where it belongs in London N22.
Auctioneers Sincura said the mural has "been sensitively restored under a cloak of secrecy", and will go on show alongside pieces by Damien Hirst, Andy Warhol, Mario Testino and Russell Young.
