Vandals have ruined a new Valentine's Day-inspired Banksy masterpiece by sprawling "w****rs" across the street art in spray paint just 24 hours after he confirmed it was genuine.
Located on Marsh Lane, BS5, the elusive British artist created this image of a young girl using her slingshot to throw red flowers on the wall.
The owner of the house which acts as the canvas paid £250 to put up a piece of perspex to protect the art, but that was later torn down.
