A Brexit-themed Banksy mural in England has been covered up with white paint.
The artwork appeared on a former amusements arcade near Dover’s busy ferry terminal in May 2017 where it could be seen by lots of passing motorists.
It showed an EU flag with a workman chipping away one of the stars, symbolising Britain leaving the EU.
The mural had been covered up last month and workmen had assembled scaffolding over it.
I see the Banksy in Dover has been painted over. Because no fun allowed. Also why not just paint THE REST OF THE BUILDING!? pic.twitter.com/H7i1kPVgKy

A local MP Charlie Elphicke has spoken out about its disappearance, saying a group called Historic England should “hang their heads in shame” for not protecting the piece.
The artwork had been valued at £1m in July.
