Tube staff direct commuters to new Banksy at Turnpike Lane

Looking for Banksy? Helpful London Underground staff are pointing out the way to Banksy's new "artwork" on the side of Poundland in Turnpike Lane.  Possibly tired of being constantly asked where the Banksy is, station staff are using the whiteboard to act as an "art guide".

The street art believed to be a genuine Banksy will not be removed from Turnpike Lane. The image popped up on the side of a Poundland store in Whymark Avenue last week.

It shows a young boy using a sewing machine, and has been covered with a sheet of clear plastic to protect the work from damage. The Olympic Torch Relay will travel past the picture as it travels through Haringey on July 25.
