Hoax Heist

There are some dickheads in the world. On Sunday afternoon four masked men caused panic in the National Portrait Gallery in London. They burst into the gallery at about 3:30pm to stage a hoax heist, attempting to prise Frank Oriti's painting Clarity (2014) from the wall. They failed, set off alarm bells and fled empty handed. Presumably they were protesting against BP's continuing sponsorship of the BP Portrait Award. With recent repatriations of dead Britons from the Tunisia beach massacre plus the 7/7 commemorations coming up on Tuesday, it's no wonder visitors to the gallery fled in panic. The four dickheads were arrested.
