The removal of the street art made international news

A Fassi crane made international news as it was used to remove a mural by renowned street artist Banksy in Bristol. A Fassi F545RA.2.26 L324, belonging to Bristol-based company Mass Group, was used to remove the Banksy artwork known as ‘Achoo’, which estimates say could now be auctioned for millions of pounds. That’s one valuable load!
