A Piece of Banksy artwork which was controversially removed from a wall in Nottingham could be shown at an art exhibition in Bury St Edmunds later this year after an art collect paid a six-figure sum for the piece.
Diggers arrived at 5 am yesterday morning to remove the Hula-hooping girl from a brick wall in Rothesay Avenue in Lenton.

Art collector John Brandler said that he planned to show the artwork alongside other Banksy pieces at Moyse’s Hall Museum as part of the Moments exhibition.
The exhibition ran in association with Mr Brandler’s gallery, Brandler Galleries, is planned to open on the 2nd of May. It will also feature Tracy Emin, Damien Hirst, The Connor Brothers, Blek Le Rat, Pure Evil, Rachel List and Kaws.
The exhibition will be supplemented by a range of workshops, live art demonstrations, talks and other events all themed around the concept of ‘moments’.
