SPECULATION is rife as to who is responsible for the grafitti that has appeared on the new Barnsley College building over the weekend.

The image of two policemen kissing - made famous by Banksy - has been drawn in black paint on one of the new pillars for the college, on Eastgate.

A Barnsley College spokesman said: "Graffiti has appeared on one of the stone pillars outside the College’s new building over the weekend. The Police have been notified and the College are in the process of removing it."

Actually, looking a bit closer, it's not so nicely done as the Banksy ones. Get rid.

its a stencil thats y it looks good but at the end of the day if they remove it someone just going do more in its place if you want it to stop then give them somewhere legal to do there thing if im honest i think the pillars out side collage could do with a bit of art on them after all it is supposed to be a modern building and that is modern art

If people are going to immitate Banksy then they're just going to tarnish Banksy's reputation with stuff like this.

Badly executed rubbish! And it's still there!!!! They would look nice with nice bright art work on them!

I like street art and I'd like to see a bit more in Tarn but copying Banksy is just lame. Find your own voice and stop being a facsimile.
