A work by guerrilla artist Banksy, which appeared in September last year outside a post-production company in Portobello Road, west London, has topped £200k on eBay:

The owner of the wall in question is Luti Fagbenle, and he's quite sensibly protected the piece with "per-specs [sic] glass".

The successful bidder will, in addition to the sale price, have to stump for the "removal and replacement of the wall". Fagbenle notes: "I advise you seek your own costing for this but shouldn't cost more than £5,000." ®
