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.
Some of the first photos ever taken of Bristol could make up to £30,000 when they are auctioned later today.

The auction will take place at Dominic Winter Auctioneers in Cirencester.
Scaffolding and cladding which covered Cheltenham's famous Banksy, known as the spies, has been taken down today.
The art work, on the side of a house in Fairview road, was covered up after it was vandalised.
Local people had hoped to raise enough money to save the work for the town. A spokesman for The Bankrobber gallery in london, which had erected the scaffolding in the first place, says that it is no longer prepared to pay to protect the work.
Bankrobber is throwing down the gauntlet to the good people of cheltenham, in short we are no longer prepared to pay to protect the work?. So it's time for someone else to put their hands in their pockets. If not it will inevitably fall foul to both the elements and the vindictive souls ?who wish it ill.
The winner of the spoof Turnip Prize has been announced at a pub in Somerset.
The competition is billed as an antidote to the prestigious Turner Prize which is announced the same night.
While the Turner Prize is sometimes controversial in its choice of winners (notably Tracy Emin and her bed), it is nothing to compare with the Turnip Prize, where the judges reward the lack of effort taken by the artists.
There were 69 entries in the competition and it seems this year's finalists for the much sought after turnip on a nail have taken the rule to heart.
In the end the judges went for possible the most topical entry - a tribute to the newest party in parliament - UKIP.
It was awarded to Ms Drunken Shepherd for her work entitled “Ewe Kip” (A Sleeping Sheep). See what she did there?
I am delighted with the lack of effort taken to create the work, I’m sure at least one beer swilling MP will be looking to purchase this work of *rubbish* art.
