Surge in orders for Bristol's Banksy angel artwork print

There has been a sudden surge in orders for a print by street artist Banksy.

Bristol Museum and Art Gallery said they are selling one £5 print of Angel Bust every minute and it has now sold out online.

Banksy created the angel sculpture with a tin of pink paint tipped over it for a take-over of the museum in 2009.

Hundreds of thousands of people queued to see Banksy versus Bristol Museum after the artist transformed it into a menagerie of "unnatural history".

The artist left the statue when the exhibition closed.

Staff say the print has been on sale for sometime but believe sales surged after it went on sale in the US and Japan.
