Is this the poshest graffiti you've ever seen?

Bristolian actor Joe Sims recently shared a photo on his Twitter account of some graffiti on the walls of St Werburgh's which spells the word 'quinoa'.

The actor, who is famous for his role in ITV's drama Broadchurch, included the hashtag "middle class graffiti"in his tweet.

He also joked with his followers that Bristol had become "a lot posher than it used to be!".

The same word has also been spotted in Glenfrome Road and Mina Road, but we're not sure if this artist is trying to rival the works of Banksy!
