More artwork has appeared in Clevedon which may have been created by Banksy.

The mysterious street artist posted a picture of a road sign featuring a pair of young children carrying two elderly people in Elton Road on his Instagram page on Friday.

Later that day the sign had disappeared with both North Somerset Council and Avon and Somerset Constabulary saying they were not involved.

However, today (Tuesday) has seen two other pieces appear in the town.

An image of a creature’s arm popping a balloon held by a young girl was found chained to the railings at Clevedon Pier. It looks similar to one of Banksy’s most recognisable works, called Balloon Girl, which shows a girl letting go of a heart-shaped balloon.

Another road sign depicting two elderly people on a scooter has also been spotted at the same Elton Road site where the first piece on Friday was found.
