Police covered up British graffiti artist Banksy’s new mural highlighting the refugee situation at the “Jungle” camp in Calais.

The barcode underneath linked to YouTube footage of police throwing teargas on migrants during the raids on the camp earlier this year.
The Police have confirmed to Westminster World that they covered it up to avoid traffic congestion.
Last month Banksy painted a mural of late Apple founder Steve Jobs as a refugee on a wall at the Calais camp. The mural depicted Jobs as the son of a Syrian migrant on his way to the United States.
