The Banksy sculpture 'The Drinker' which was stolen over ten years ago by a political art group has finally been returned to it's original home-by the very group who stole it.

The spoof Rodin sculpture was originally erected near London's Shaftsbury Avenue where it was stolen by 'arto-politkal activists' Art Kaida-leading to a decade long feud with Banksy.

They have now decided to return the sculpture 'in time for Christmas' with a few added modifications with the group claiming that they are 'doing to Banksy what Banksy did to Rodin.'

The group have added a toilet seat and have changed the name of the piece to 'The Stinker.'
