New Banksy artwork near French Embassy could be removed by building owner

A new Banksy artwork near the French Embassy could be removed or covered up by the building's owner.

The mural depicts the orphan Cosette from the musical Les Misérables, who appears to be affected by a cannister of tear gas.

It also contains the first use of a QR code by a Banksy artwork, which if scanned links to an unverified YouTube video of alleged uses of tear gas by police in the Calais refugee camp known as 'The Jungle'.
