AN ORIGINAL Banksy mural that had been painted over by his street artist rival has been restored.

Reading's very own answer to 'Banksy' appears to have brought the typewriter back to life again.

A street artist who goes by the name 'Peachy' has painted over the typewriter to make it look like Banksy's work again.

The work was done overnight according to Peachy's Instagram page.
