Northern Quarter's most famous mosaic has been vandalised.

Footage and photos of the incident made their way onto twitter pretty quickly following the incident.

The mosaic is one of several created by renowned artist Mark Kennedy, who is the creative behind all of the mosaic art on Affleck's Palace.

One person tweeted: "This is not just a piece of art that has been ruined, it’s a Manchester institution.

"It’s a piece that embodies the culture of this city, that shows how great it is and is one of the most famous sayings about mcr; this isn’t just destruction it’s disrespect."
