An artwork by street artist Banksy in Bristol has been painted over in an incident described by residents as an "act of vandalism".

The painting, opposite Bristol Children's Hospital, is of a crouched armed police officer, with a child about to burst a paper bag behind him.

The picture first appeared on Upper Maudlin Street four years ago. It has now been covered in black.

It is not yet known if the black paint can be removed.

In July, Banksy's gorilla in a pink mask painting on the wall of the ex-North Bristol Social Club, in Eastville, Bristol, was mistakenly painted over.

Saeed Ahmed, the building's new owner, said he had never heard of Banksy and had the wall whitewashed.

Mr Ahmed apologised for the whitewashing and the artwork has now been partially restored.

lol how funny is this, I've always been of the opinion that Banksy is a Vandal and should face charges for all the vandalism he's done. How ironic that this should happen, I live in Bristol by the way.

If you had the time to stop and look at the work there is some clever detail in it.

If he had time to stop and think, he might realise he's defacing public (and private) property!!!

Looks like he is quite controversial from some of the replies
