According to the BBC, a local resident named Dale Comley saw a “bulky guy in a high-vis jacket” early on Thursday morning who he thinks was Banksy. “I saw a man in a high-vis jacket leaning against the railings opposite—he was looking at the wall the whole time. Then about an hour later, I looked out and saw loads of people in the street,” the man shared with the BBC.
