A mural by anonymous British street artist Banksy depicting a homeless man being pulled by two reindeer has gone viral on social media, as the number of homeless deaths in the country hit a new high past year.
The artwork appears to make a park bench look as though it's being pulled by Santa's sleigh, with two reindeer painted on the wall next to the bench.
With over 4,500 people sleeping rough over the United Kingdom, many people have praised Banksy for drawing attention to the issue, especially with temperatures already dropping extremely low this winter.
Within hours of its Instagram unveiling, featuring a man named Ryan, a vandal sprayed red noses on the two reindeer.
The artwork was created by the elusive artist in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter over the weekend, but was apparently defaced on Monday.
Since the attack, Jewellery Quarter Business Improvement District (BID) has employed 24 hour security overnight to protect the art from further vandalism.
"A young guy just jumped over the barriers and sprayed two noses on it, which is inaccurate to start with as only Rudolph has a red nose".
