Another ‘Banksy’-style piece of artwork has appeared in Reading after the first work was vandalised.
It is very similar to the typewriter that features in the Banksy drawing on Reading Prison that appeared earlier this month.
The mural was vandalised earlier this week, with “Team Robbo” daubed in red paint at the bottom of the painting.
This is thought to be in reference to the late street artist King Robbo, who Banksy had a famous feud with in the 1990s and early 2000s.
That attack saw the typewriter at the bottom of the painting covered up with red paint.
Now, an almost identical drawing of the typewriter appeared overnight between Wednesday, March 17 and Thursday, March 18.
An element of Banksy’s feud with King Robbo was how the two used to go head to head with each other’s work, adding and removing elements of the existing artwork.

It could well be the case the elusive Bristolian artist has returned to Reading to create a new piece of artwork.
Banksy has yet to confirm whether he has returned to the Berkshire town.
It could also be the case a copycat has carried out the work.
The painting is on part of the bridge near Christchurch Meadows.
The artwork was spotted by a lady who lives nearby, who asked not to be named, during her morning walk along the Thames.
