The new Banksy mural which has apperared on a wall in Bristol docks has been defaced overnight.
The mural, which pays tribute to Vermeer's girl with a pearl earring, was splashed with paint, although the main part of the artwork is still visible.
Legendary actor Ian McKellen had some unexpected advice for pupils at Chew Valley School. During a visit to talk to students about the value of working hard and revising for exams, he launched into one of the most famous speeches from Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings trilogy: "You Shall Not Pass"
Banksy's latest artwork - which has appeared on a wall in Bristol docks - pays tribute to the work known as the Girl with a Pearl Earring by the Dutch painter Vermeer.
We thought you might like to compare the two...
The graffiti artist Banksy has once again chosen his home city for his latest work.
The mural, which pays tribute to Vermeer's girl with a pearl earring, has gone up on a wall in Bristol docks, near the Cottage Inn and ss Great Britain. Banksy's trademark sense of humour comes into play again though - with a burglar alarm standing in for the original's jewellery.
X Factor singer Chloe-Jasmine Whichello has revealed she is planning her revenge on Simon Cowell - by naming a new hamster after him and watching it run round in circles.
The 23-year-old model, who went to Wells Cathedral School, lost the sing-off against eight-piece boyband Stereo Kicks on last night's show, where the TV mogul told her that she lacked passion.
It meant a double elimination for her mentor Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, who also said goodbye to another of her acts Stephanie Nala.
Whichello said she was unhappy that Cowell appeared to be preserving his own acts and then teasing his fellow judges.
She said: "I respect him very much as a businessman. His brainchild of The X Factor is spectacular.
"What I didn't agree with was, he had all of his acts secured and sat down on the panel to intimidate the other judges."
She added: "I'm now about to purchase a hamster, call it Simon Cowell, and it's going to be running around a kennel."
Here's a map of Bristol docks showing where you can track down the Bristol graffiti artist's latest work. We've called it "Girl without an Earring".
A little local knowledge in our newsroom has located the new Banksy near the Cottage pub on Hanover Place in Bristol docks.
Of course Banksy hasn't been arrested. He's been too busy in Bristol but where? http://t.co/EDmkcxJNrI
