Banksy mural destroyed by building work

A mural by British street artist Banksy which mocked government surveillance has been destroyed during building works on the house on which it appeared in 2014 in Cheltenham, southwest England.
The local council said the owner had confirmed the mural was damaged during urgent works on the end-of-terrace home, which was given protected status after the mural appeared overnight in April 2014.
The mural was valued at £1 million ($1.3 million, 1.16 million euros).

CNN: “’Spy Booth’ has been vandalized on multiple occasions and now appears to have been destroyed entirely.”
The Guardian: “Photographs from the scene showed that the wall had been stripped back to the brickwork, with a pile of rubble on the street. However, it is unclear whether the mural, which has protected status, was destroyed during the building work or removed beforehand.”
Daily Mail: “A £1million Banksy artwork satirising government surveillance has been accidentally destroyed by a builder during work to protect the Grade II listed building it was painted.”
