A new Banksy?

A piece of street art has recently appeared in Leamington on a wall behind the Helping Hands charity shop on Gloucester Street. Many suspect it's by Banksy. When the piece of street art first appeared it had Banksy's signature at the bottom of the work, but when I took this photograph the signature had been deleted and 'fake' written underneath.

The work depicts former Chancellor George Osbourne with a red nose, and the value of the UK's national debt of £555 billion.

The charity - which supports homeless and vulnerable people - say it could be a fake. They have tried emailing Banksy but so far have had no reply.
