<p>The mere mention of Banksy's name can have art-lovers salivating. His work sells for hundreds of thousands of pounds, and he has just become the toast of New York city. Westminster Council however, view his graffiti as any other and are to remove the 23ft high piece entitled One Nation Under CCTV from a wall in London's Newman Street. The mural depicts a red-hooded figure painting the words "ONE NATION UNDER CCTV" on the wall, while a US-style police officer holding a camera and a brown dog look on.</p>
