Apparently, the barbed wire above the gate was a new addition, proving that Banksy wanted people to stay out of this showpiece. However, these pictures show that where there’s a will there’s a way and some guys did still venture through the small opening between the gate and the wall. These guys were innocent and just wanted to take pictures, but I will say that the crowd gasped every time someone climbed the fence, for fear that they were graffiti writers defending their turf and once over and through the fence, they were going to have accomplices hand them some spray paint. But, luckily, that didn’t happen in these instances.
