Banksy - Waste Bosses Plan To Snare Banksy

Waste management bosses in the U.K. have called for street artist Banksy to be charged with vandalism and have vowed to set him up for an arrest where his true identity will finally be revealed.

The mysterious artist has gained a cult following for his 'guerilla' work, spray painting eye-catching images on public walls in the dead of night, and for refusing to discuss his background.

Famous fans of the British painter include Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis, supermodel Kate Moss, and actor Jake Gyllenhaal, but a leading waste disposal company is now waging war on his work.

Staff at Business Waste blame Banksy for encouraging youths to spray unsightly graffiti on walls, and they are planning to set a trap to catch him in the act and make a citizen's arrest.

A spokesman for the company says, "He needs to be stopped! While he's gadding about the major cities of the world being hailed as one of the great guerilla artists, vandals think it's Ok to do the same on walls everywhere...

"We're going to set up a trap to catch him. We've prepared a big blank wall opposite our offices that no self-respecting international graffiti artist will be able to resist... Once he's struggling under the huge cargo net, we'll make the citizen's arrest, pull off his disguise and unmask him in front of the world's media."
