Em­ploy­ees han­dle the newly com­pleted work by artist Banksy ti­tled Love is in the Bin, a work that was cre­ated when the paint­ing Girl with Bal­loon was passed through a shred­der in a sur­prise in­ter­ven­tion by the street artist fol­low­ing the work’s sale, at Sotheby’s auc­tion house in Lon­don on Fri­day. The buyer of the work that was partly de­stroyed mo­ments af­ter it sold has gone through with the pur­chase, Sotheby’s said. The mod­i­fied ver­sion has now been cer­ti­fied by Banksy’s au­then­ti­ca­tion body, Pest Con­trol, as a new piece of work in its own right
