The artwork in a town that acts as one of Britain’s main gateways to the Continent comes as the UK is in the middle of a General Election campaign and Brexit.

The piece is also just a short crossing from Calais where Banksy sent most of his exhibitions from his Dismaland art project in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, to be used as shelter for migrants.
