Street artist Banksy has chosen Birmingham as the site of one of his latest art pieces.

A video, posted to his Instagram, shows a rough sleeper on a bench, and graffitied reindeer on the wall next to him which make it appear as if they are pulling the bench, and the rough sleeper, along.

Banksy posted on Instagram: 'God bless Birmingham.'

The bench, and the reindeer, can reportedly be found on Vyse Street, in the Jewellery Quarter.
