Banksy's balloon girl beats Turner and Constable to be voted the nation's favourite artwork 

Evening Standard logo
Banksy's famous image of a girl letting go of a heart-shaped balloon has been voted the nation's favourite artwork in a new poll. The artwork, which Justin Bieber loves so much that he got a tattoo of it, originally appeared on a wall East London in 2002. It beat stiff competition from big names such as Turner and Constable to come top of the list. Constable's 1821 landscape painting The Hay Wain was in second place, with Jack Vettriano's ubiquitous 1992 painting The Singing Butler in second place. The top five was completed by Turner's 1839 work The Fighting Temeraire and Antony Gormley's 1998 Angel of the North sculpture. The poll comprises the vote of 2,000 people, based on a list drawn up by The Frame National Art Audit. It marks the launch of a new Samsung TV that is preloaded with different artworks, allowing it to become a piece of art when not being used as a television. The rest of the top ten included two album covers: Peter Blake's Sergeant Pepper album cover for The Beatles, and Hipgnosis and George Hardie's Dark Side of the Moon design for Pink Floyd. Also featured were LS Lowry's Going to the Match, John William Waterhouse's The Lady of Shalott and George Stubbs' Mares and Foals. The full list of the nation's favourite artworks is as follows: 1. Banksy; Balloon Girl 2. John Constable; The Hay Wain 3. Jack Vettriano; The Singing Butler 4. JMW Turner; The Fighting Temeraire 5. Antony Gormley; The Angel of the North 6. L S Lowry; Going to the Match 7. John William Waterhouse; The Lady of Shalott 8. Peter Blake; Sgt Pepper album cover 9. Hipgnosis and George Hardie; Dark Side of the Moon album cover 10.

Jeremy Vine: My children can't find BBC One on TV 

Evening Standard logo
Jeremy Vine has said his own children cannot find BBC One on TV amid warnings the famous broadcaster is losing relevance with youngsters. The renowned TV host, who it was revealed earned £700,000-£749,999 wage working for the broadcaster last year, made the admission on Facebook during a discussion on the BBC's waning appeal. Former sports boss Roger Mosey had posted a link to his article warning youngsters consider Netflix better value and are turning to the popular streaming service. In response, the Radio 2 and Eggheads presenter posted: "I asked my kids to put BBC1 on and they couldn't do it... as they watch everything on catch up." The TV personality made the admission during a debate on social media (PA) Mr Mosey had written an article for the Financial Times citing Ofcom research showing that young people who use Netflix rank the service higher than the BBC. He wrote: "Those figures confirm the anecdotes I hear from my students. "They see Netflix, costing a fiver or so a month, and with all their favourite American shows plus some BBC content, as better value than the licence fee at double that and with too many programmes aimed at older viewers. "Yet a change to a subscription model for the BBC would destroy its tradition of offering something for everyone. "There's certainly nervousness among my former colleagues in Broadcasting House." Research from Ofcom found viewers were generally pleased with the BBC, but fell short of Netflix's rating of a 72 per cent satisfaction rate among 16 to 34-year-olds. Mr Vine publicly congratulated Mr Mosey for the article. It was revealed last week that Jeremy Vine pocketed a huge £700,000-£749,999 after BBC bosses released the pay packets of its most famous employees. Mr Vine gave an awkward answer when grilled following the publication of his pay packet after he was slammed for being "grossly overpaid". He told former coal miner Harry Jones, who called in to Vine's show, that it's not "the moment for me" to say if he thinks he is overpaid.... read more

North Korea threatens nuclear strike on 'heart of US' if regime is threatened 

Evening Standard logo
North Korea threatened a nuclear strike on the "heart of the US" if it attempts to remove Kim Jong-Un as leader. The threat was in response to comments from CIA chief Mike Pompeo, who said last week that the Trump administration needed to find a way to separate Jong-un from his growing nuclear stockpile. He said: "As for the regime, I am hopeful we will find a way to separate that regime from this system. The North Korean people I'm sure are lovely people and would love to see him go." North Korea responded by saying it would "annihilate any countries" directly or indirectly involved in threatening the regime, according to Pyongyang's state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA). Read more Kim Jong-un attends concert in honour of North Korea missile launch "The Democratic People's Republic of Korea legally stipulates that if the supreme dignity of the DPRK is threatened, it must pre-emptively annihilate those countries and entities that are directly or indirectly involved in it, by mobilizing all kinds of strike means including the nuclear ones," the KCNA quoted a North Korea Foreign Ministry spokesman as saying. "Should the US dare to show even the slightest sign of attempt to remove our supreme leadership, we will strike a merciless blow at the heart of the US with our powerful nuclear hammer, honed and hardened over time." It comes amid reports of a new nuclear test scheduled for this week in North Korea. A US defence official was quoted by CNN as saying that ballistic missile launching equipment was detected arriving in the city of Kusong in the central North Pyongan province last Friday.... read more
