A councillor in Wales has been forced to resign from his post, because he was constantly being accused of being Banksy.

William Gannon was the councillor for the Pembroke Dock in Wales.

He is a community artist who has been creating work in the same areas as Banksy. He felt the constant rumours were interfering with his ability to perform his duties as councillor. At first he hoped that the rumours would just go away, as they did not rather than have it affect the reputation of the Town he stepped down. He has now taken to wearing a badge that states ” am NOT Banksy”.
