Landlord sells Banksy mural ‘for £2,000,000’ after ripping it off wall

The Mero says A Banksy mural ripped from a wall has sold for a rumoured £2 million, sparking outrage among residents of a seaside town.

Depicting a child with a crowbar next to a sandcastle, the graffiti had appeared on an old electrical shop in Lowestoft, Suffolk, in August.

Gary and Nadine Schwartz, the couple who own the building on London Road North, later removed the work of the world-renowned street artist and have now sold it privately.

But Nasima Begum, the deputy town mayor, branded it a ‘shame’ that the pair had decided to ‘profit off something that wasn’t for them’.
