A collection of works by graffiti artist Banksy have sold for more than £400,000 at an auction in London.

Girl and Balloon, one of 18 pieces sold on Thursday, fetched £73,250, almost five times its estimated pre-sale price.

The image has been painted directly onto the cardboard backing of an Ikea frame.

The stencil painting Leopard and Barcode, which has never been under the hammer before, sold for £75,650.
