LAUGHING ALL THE WAY TO THE BANKSY; RESULT!

Byline: with sports betting's top tipster DEREK McGOVERN E-MAIL ME AT: betsguru@aol.com, ADDITIONAL REPORTING BY JOHN SHAW

WHO among us has not gazed quizzically at a piece of work from street artist Banksy and thought, "How can this rubbish be worth money?"

Banksy is believed to be behind a lifelike picture depicting three shadowy figures eavesdropping near GCHQ in Cheltenham.

Art is very much a subjective concept - what is the difference between street art and graffiti? The true test of really good art tends to lie in the wallet of the beholder. Ladbrokes offer Banksy at 10-1 to claim the artwork as his before Easter Monday and 33-1 for the council to remove it by then and put it on eBay.
