Rumours have abounded over recent weeks that famed street artist Banksy could have been at work in Sussex.

Conjecture spread after several Banksy-style graffiti works were spotted in various places around Horsham.

But now people are being given a chance to get their hands on the real thing by the anonymous artist - a genuine Banksy is going on sale next week in Wisborough Green.

The artwork - a screenprint of the Grin Reaper - is signed and numbered and goes under the hammer at an auction at Bellmans antiques and interiors from May 9-11.

It is expected to be sold for up to £15,000.

A spokesman for Bellmans said the Banksy was the first one to come up for auction with them, but that Banksy originals were “relatively frequently seen nationwide.”
