The property on London Road North in Lowestoft was taken off the market when Banksy confirmed a mural was his

Estate agent Danny Steel said the owner of the former Lowestoft Electrical building had been considering his options

Danny Steel, managing director of Steel & Co, said: “To a great extent it’s really a figure out of the air.

“It’s not based on a great knowledge of the value of art.”

Mr Steel, whose company listed the property for sale, said the owner had “looked into getting the Banksy lifted and moved, but it’s maybe a bigger task than first thought.”

He added: “Hopefully it will be staying where it is.”

Mr Steel said he had a meeting planned for Thursday with a council officer and an art conservationist to discuss options.

In the meantime, the artwork has been covered in Perspex to “protect it from the elements,” he said.
