Artwork created by the world-renowned Banksy is being removed from a building in Lowestoft.

The Bristol-based artist visited the Norfolk and Suffolk coast in August as part of his 'Great British Spraycation'.

Several murals appeared across Lowestoft, including an image depicting a boy digging a sand castle on the Lowestoft Electrical Building in London Road North.

However, images appeared on social media earlier today showing that work was taking place around the mural, which is on a private property.

A spokesperson for East Suffolk Council has confirmed that it is now in the process of being removed.

“We have spoken with the landlord of this property who has confirmed the artwork is being removed," they said.

It is currently unclear what the landlord plans to do.
