Banksy Posing Exclusively For TheSpoof.com

Maverick graffiti artist, Banksy, whose work sells for tens of thousands of pounds in galleries around the world, yet whose identity remains a mystery, has been singled out for identification and subsequent arrest by Scotland Yard as the police get serious about cleaning up London.

Detective Chief Inspector Dick Bastard of The Yard, a veteran and suitably grizzled old warhorse has been tasked with the manhunt. DCI Bastard, who is best known for busting the Bubble Gum Gang of Battersea - notorious in south London for dropping litter - says that with cooperation from the public he'll have no problem bringing Banksy to justice.

Banksy, renowned for the subversive quality of his art - such as 'Water Lilies With Abandoned Supermarket Trolley' and 'The Last Supper With Cola And Pizzas' - is apparently not all that bothered by DCI Bastard's crusade to bring him to justice.

"Yeah whatever," somebody claiming to be Banksy told us, on condition that we don't reveal his true identity.

And so the hunt begins. We last spotted DCI Bastard emerging from an Ali Bullo Fried Chicken outlet in Clapham with a 'Family Bucket' stuffing his face and wiping the grease off his chin with a napkin.

More as we get it.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
