Dorset now has its very own work by Banksy.

A painting by the street artist has appeared on a wall in Lyme Regis near the River Lym.

Banksy has now put the image on his website, which is confirmation the work belongs to him.

It was spotted by Andrew Blackmore and his partner, who told Wessex FM he thinks it's the perfect spot for the painting or an origami crane with a goldfish in its mouth.
