New artwork by Banksy appeared on the wall of a derelict farmhouse in Herne Bay, Kent, on Wednesday but was later demolished.

Titled Morning has Broken, the mural depicted a silhouetted boy in a window opening curtains made of corrugated iron, along with a cat who is peering out at the view.

The new work was confirmed in three photographs on the secretive graffiti artist’s Instagram account.

The Banksy piece is shown in a full-length shot of the derelict property, which is covered in ivy, has peeling white paintwork and is missing roof slates on a side building.

There is a close-up of the artwork in another image and the third photograph shows demolition work that is being carried out on the building.

The final photograph shows the wall on which the artwork originally appeared has been demolished, with a digger, skip and a pile of brick rubble on the ground as a workman looks on.

The skip company told PA the bin that appears in one of the photographs was at a property in the seaside town of Herne Bay, Kent. It said the bin was its only involvement in the project.
