An art installation shown at Dismaland last summer is back in the West for art lovers to view. The installation is hidden inside a forty foot shipping container and offers the chance to look at a model village with a twist.

Peek inside and there's a handcrafted miniature town - showing scenes of destruction and chaos. The installation is by Jimmy Cauty and inside there is a fictitious town you can view through peep holes.

It is known as Aftermath Dislocation Principle. It was first shown at Banksy's Dismaland in Weston-super-Mare last summer. But now it's on a UK tour - kicking off at Bruton Art Factory.

Banksy's Dismaland "bemusement" park was hugely successful, with enormous demand for tickets. This is a chance for those who didn't get tickets to see a most thought-provoking piece of art.

Gallery Directory Suzanne Bisset told ITV News: "It's a massive coup for us to get it and we're really pleased. Lots of people couldn't get tickets to Dismaland or weren't able to get in for whatever reason, whereas here it's free to get in and everybody's welcome."

For the next few days visitors to Bruton will be able to get a surreal model village experience. It's hoped it will be inspiring for all who view it.

Banksy has left his mark on the 'Jungle' in Calais, where migrants and refugees are camped out in squalid conditions.

A portrait of Apple founder Steve Jobs in the artist's distinct spray-paint style has appeared on a bridge in the camp.

It appeared as infrastructure from Banksy's 'Dismaland' parody theme park was moved from its original spot in Weston-super-Mare to the Calais camp.

Theme park staff have been constructing emergency housing in Calais as part of the Dismal Aid project.
