Guard hired to protect Banksy works

Store bosses have ramped up security after one of Britain's most bankable artists secretly installed two original artworks in a shop.

Graffiti artist Banksy placed the works - a painting on a canvas and another stencilled on a rusty oil can - in a branch of HMV in London's Oxford Street earlier this week.

Staff had been unaware the artist - whose works sell for tens of thousands of pounds and have been collected by Angelina Jolie and Kate Moss - was leaving his creations. Instead, they had thought a window display of posters were to be placed in the shop to plug a DVD release of Banksy's film Exit Through The Gift Shop.
