Guerrilla artists bombard the London Tube with Banksy posters

The London Underground became a focal point of protest after hundreds of unauthorised ads cropped up across the network critical of the UK’s arms sales.

Reportedly over 300 posters, previously housed at the Museum of Cruel Designs exhibition in Banksy’s weird and wonderful Dismaland, cropped up across the capital this morning (Tuesday 15 September).

Coinciding with the first day of London's DSEI Arms Fair at the ExCel Centre in London where arms are showcased and exported across the globe, the posters cropped up in bus stops, tube carriage boards and more.

A TfL spokesperson told London24: “This is not an authorised advert. It is fly-posting and therefore an act of vandalism which we take extremely seriously. We have instructed our contractor to remove any found on our network.”

Below is a collection of the works erected in the extensive campaign.
