Banksy's gorilla in a pink mask painting has been partially restored

A work by street artist Banksy which was painted over on a Bristol building has been partially restored.

The gorilla in a pink mask stencil had been on the wall of the ex-North Bristol Social Club in Eastville.

But the new owner of the building, Saeed Ahmed, had never heard of Banksy and had the wall whitewashed.

It has not been revealed how the artwork was restored. Mr Ahmed, who had apologised for whitewashing it, was unavailable for comment.
