Original pieces of artwork by Bristol graffiti artist Banksy have been recovered by police after an art dealer alerted officers to an alleged fraud, Scotland Yard said.
The original of 'Wrong War' by the artist and a signed print of 'No Ball Games' were bought for £12,990 last month, but the card payments were cancelled by the bank, leaving the dealer with neither money nor artworks. Police tracked down and arrested a man in London on suspicion of fraud.
Officers searched an address in London, believed to be linked to the suspect, and recovered 'Wrong War'. 'No Ball Games' was found after a member of the public bought it from the suspect and became suspicious of the transaction, police said.
