Banksy's 'Spy Booth' artwork defaced

A view of the Banksy mural which targets the issue of Government surveillance with silver and red paint sprayed over it, Cheltenham, England, Friday, Aug. 1, 2014. A mural by street artist Banksy that sparked a local preservation campaign has been defaced. "Spy Booth" shows three agents in trench coats and trilby hats eavesdropping on a phone booth. It appeared in April on a wall in Cheltenham, western England, home of spy agency GCHQ. A local group formed to save the work after the building's owner attempted to have it removed and sold. Campaigner Angela De Souza said a local businessman had agreed to buy and preserve the work. But on Friday it was covered in scrawled graffiti letters. De Souza said conservators were in “a race against time” to save it. Banksy works have fetched as much as $1.8 million at auction, and several of his outdoor pieces have recently been stripped from walls and sold.
