Graffiti protest.

IT'S a lamb, it's a banana and now it's covered in graffiti.

The Superlambanana, designed by Japanese artist Taro Chiezo, has been daubed with paint by a protester angry at the demolition of the Joseph P Lamb maritime supplies building on Carpenters Row, Wapping, to make way for luxury apartments.

The bright yellow artwork has been daubed with the words ``Trevor destroys what the Luftwaffe didn't'' - a reference to the previous owner Sir Trevor Jones and his decision to sell the building.

Sir Trevor insists that the building could not meet requirements and was a serious health and safety risk.
