Banksy piece removed from Shoreditch wall ahead of building demolition

They have been part of the landscape in Shoreditch for 15 years, two iconic Banksys - pieces of graffiti history.

But what if they just happen to be on the wall of a building you want to knock down?

Well that's what happening in east London as a new hotel is being a built.

As a result two masterpieces created by the illusive artist will be kept out of the way while construction work is happening, and then returned to where they were first created.
