Banksy brings art to the 'Jungle'

Artist Banksy has left his mark on the so-called Credit: Banksy

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.
