Anti-Murdoch poster appears in Clerkenwell

A poster mocking media mogul Rupert Murdoch has appeared on a busy road in Clerkenwell.

The print, by subversive artist Dr D, who specialises in altering existing billboards to display political messages, went up last week in a prominent position in Central Street.

Mr Murdoch has been the subject of public anger recently after the hacking scandal led to the closure of the Sunday paper The News of the World.

Dr D said: “Murdoch was a good target. I’m the son of a printer man, to quote the famous song.”
