Earlier this week, enigmatic street artist Banksy claimed responsibility for a piece at the back of a car garage in Port Talbot in Wales.

The work, in the shadow of the town’s dominant steelworks, shows a child seemingly playing in the snow, standing by a sled with his tongue out, tasting the falling snowflakes.

But around the corner of the garage, it shows smoke rising from a burning fire, and the snowflakes are actually falling ash.

And it’s causing such a stir that the town’s local authority has had to call in traffic wardens to police those who want to see it.
