A Banksy mural taken from a wall in Nottingham is to be restored and put on display in a museum in Suffolk.
Banksy's 'hula-hoop girl' artwork was bought by an art collector from Essex for a six-figure sum.
John Brandler, who runs a gallery in Brentwood, said he was saving the artwork from damage and destruction. He said:
The mural will go to the Moyse's Hall Museum in Bury St Edmunds which has a large collection of Banksy pieces.
But Nottingham's loss is a gain for modern art in Suffolk.
Mr Brandler said that the 'hula-hoop girl' artwork will feature in a street-art exhibition in the museum.
It is set to start on May 2, running until the end of September.
