The owner of the Cheltenham home featuring Banksy’s ‘Spy Booth’ mural told the BBC yesterday (23 August) that the £1 million work had been accidentally destroyed during repair works undertaken on the property. “I just want people to know that I wasn’t trying to sell it and it wasn’t taken off deliberately,” David Possee said.

Cheltenham Borough Council plans to investigate.
