Banksy art offers lifeline to struggling club

The piece by the renowned street artist could sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars.

    Artwork left by British street artist, Banksy, could save a struggling youth club from closure.

    The piece, showing an embracing couple distracted by their smartphones, was spray-painted on a door at the club in the western English city of Bristol.

    The city's council, which owns the building, has taken the work but it will go on display at a local gallery where donations will be collected to help the club.

    Al Jazeera's Harry Smith reports from Bristol.
