Police pose for pictures as they guard new Banksy artwork in Birmingham highlighting homelessness at Christmas

West Midlands Police officers posed for pictures after Birmingham City Council requested them to attend a new Christmas Banksy mural on Vyse Street in Birmingham, England.

The video, filmed on Monday (December 9), shows the officers taking pictures of each other and interacting with members of the public.

Street artist Banksy's new artwork highlights the issue of homelessness at Christmas.

The officers are on guard of the artwork as the council want to protect it with perspex to stop it being attacked.

The artwork and bench have been cordoned off to prevent members of the public getting too close.
