A stencil spray painting by Banksy has shredded itself after being sold at auction for more than a million euro.

The artist's Girl With Balloon was the final piece being sold by Sotheby's in London last night.

But just after it went under the hammer, the canvas passed through a shreeder that was hidden inside the frame.

The head of the auction house said "It appears we just got Banksy-ed".
