Suspected Banksy at Rebellion.

The end of the 10 days of climate change protests by Extinction Rebellion activists has been marked by what appears to be a Banksy mural.

The environmental artwork sprung up on a wall in Marble Arch around the time the demonstrators gathered nearby to celebrate the closing of their spell of disruption in central London. While there is no confirmation the piece is by the famed artist, it does bear a similar stencilled style.

It shows a child clutching an Extinction Rebellion sign while crouching near a plant shoot emerging from the earth.

"From this moment despair ends and tactics begin," accompanying words say.

Extinction Rebellion supporter Calvin Benson, 48, from north west London, said: "This artwork represents the will of the people."
