BANKSY-style posters have appeared in Belfast lampooning the DUP's Gregory Campbell.

The East Derry MP, who is known for his outbursts towards republicans, is depicted in some posters with a long red tongue and fiery red hair.

The posters, which seem to use a pop-art style, have been placed in recent weeks at Hill Street in the Cathedral Quarter area of Belfast.

It follows similar visuals by street artist TLO that appeared across the city in late 2014 and over the course of last year.

The posters included images of DUP MP Ian Paisley jnr merged with North Korea leader Kim Jong-un.

Posters of former DUP leader Ian Paisley also appeared in Belfast, Ballycastle, Antrim and even London.

The street art is similar to Banksy's work by making political comment through satirical imagery.
