The elusive street artist Banksy has confirmed that he is behind a piece of street art showing a young girl firing a slingshot of flowers at a building in Bristol.

A local couple walking in the Barton Hill area of the city were stunned to find the striking piece – since dubbed ‘the Valentine’s Banksy’ – on the side of a building.

James Bullock said he saw scaffolding on the wall at about 6.20am on Thursday and was amazed when he returned later with his girlfriend and noticed the artwork had appeared.

The piece, in Marsh Lane, features a stencilled image of a girl firing a slingshot of red flowers and leaves.

Banksy confirmed the piece was his by posting two images of it on his official Instagram account and website in the early hours of Valentine’s Day.

‘There’s so many people coming and enjoying it, taking pictures, it’s fantastic.

‘There’s been a lot of debate if it is a Banksy or not. Most people I’ve spoken to think it 100% is, and they’re naming it the Valentine’s Banksy.

‘It’s incredible and beautiful.’

The family are looking to cover up the artwork with glass to preserve it.

‘We hope it’s Banksy’s work. Come and have a look yourself. Whoever painted, it’s worth admiring their creativity. Thank you.’

Ms Woodruff continued: ‘My slight worry is, we’ve got this Storm Dennis coming on the weekend, so I really want to try and protect the roses.’

News of the work first emerged on Twitter, with the Bristol Somali Community Association writing before the artist’s confirmation: ‘Today in Barton Hill, we woke up with this remarkable mural art painted on one of the houses of the area.’

In another clip, the cute youngster took a shot from the end of a corridor and impressively sank the ball into a mini basketball net in the bedroom.

Daisy shared a video of Ted’s mad skills on the Facebook group The Motherload earlier this week, where it notched up nearly 2,000 likes in less than 24 hours.

Members commented on his incredible ability, with many claiming the youngster has a promising career in the beautiful game ahead.

Some branded him the next Beckham or Ronaldo, while another admitted: ‘Wow my boy is football mad too but don’t have that skills. That was amazing (sic).’

‘Oh my gosh that’s insane!!!!!! Well done Ted!’ raved another, while one added: ‘Left foot too, he’s gonna be a pro! Pure talent.’ 

Daisy told FEMAIL that Ted was kicking a football ‘as soon as he could walk’, and they live opposite a park which is ideal for his ‘obsession’.

‘We have wasted a lot of money on toys that have never been played with as football always comes first,’ she joked. 

‘He practices different football skills and techniques every day. He managed to get the ball in the washing machine a few months ago, and now it’s a constant game! 

‘He has a lot of patience when it comes to football and never gives up. He is constantly finding new tricks and different techniques to perfect, so there is so much more up his sleeve.

‘We are a very outdoors type of family, so when it comes to the weekend we always go on adventures such as walks, the zoo, lots of parks – but wherever we go a football comes too. It’s a nightmare!’

She added that Ted loves watching football with his dad, her partner Ryan Brown, 25 – an avid Chelsea fan who plays for a local club. 

Daisy told how she and Ryan decided to post the video after friends and family urged them to share Ted’s skills with the world. 

‘Everyone is always so impressed,’ she said. ‘I’m totally in shock at the amount of attention this has created, as we are used to him doing these tricks all the time.

‘We would love for him to sign professionally one day as he loves it so much. 

‘Everything about football makes him so happy, so why would we ever want to stop him? We love each other very much and only want the best for our Ted!’

Video has emerged of the moment a cyclist was slammed to the ground by a Tesco delivery driver who turned left across a painted cycle lane.

The dramatic footage, shot on a helmet cam, shows the delivery van pulling up alongside the cyclist using a blue cycleway in Vauxhall, London.

He indicated and immediately turns into a side road and the path of the cyclist, knocking him from his bike in a painful collision.

He claims police were not able to charge him with a driving offence as a result and instead charged him with failing to provide details of the driver.

Chris, of Surrey, said that in an uncut version of the footage, the driver claimed the cyclist had been in his ‘blind spot’.

The cyclist was ‘very lucky’ to be able to ride away from the scene, he added.

He said: ‘As someone who cycles through London daily I see a lot of issues on the road. I was knocked off my bike once, which is why I wear a camera on my helmet.

‘The victim in this case was very lucky he wasn’t more seriously injured. His leg came very close to being caught under the wheel of the van.’

The incident happened in May last year along Cycleway 8 near Vauxhall Bridge Road. Last month, the driver appeared at Lavender Hill Magistrates’s Court where he was handed six points, a £300 fine and £332 in costs.

The video of the incident is now being shared widely on social media as a reminder for both cyclists and drivers to be careful on the roads.

PC Harry Rance, who responds on a bike in the City Of London, shared a clip of the incident on Twitter and said: ‘Just a reminder that a bit of different coloured paint isn’t going to protect you from incompetent drivers.

‘Plan for the worst and remember the road is a shared environment.’

Broadcaster Jeremy Vine, who frequently films his own experience riding on London roads, retweeted the video with the caption ‘no point in paint’, referring to the blue marked cycle way.

A Tesco spokesperson said: ‘This was a distressing incident and we’re very sorry that it happened and wish the cyclist a full recovery.

‘We invest a lot of time in training our drivers to work safely and considerately and will continue to do that.’
