A fake £10 note created by icon featuring the face of the late Princess of Wales has gone on sale online.

The New Town-based seller has slapped a £600 price tag on the note - one of a sheet with a note of authenticity.

"Original Banksy Di-faced Tenner," posted the seller on Gumtree. "Part of an original sheet with provenance verified by Pest Control, Banksy Authentication.

"Professionally framed in double-sided perspex so both sides can be viewed. A rare chance to own your own little piece of the Banksy phenomenon."

Earlier this year, one of the "Di-faced tenners" was donated to the British Museum's collection of some 70,000 types of currency.

And in March 2014, a series of the notes were donated to the Cube Cinema in Bristol, raising £11,000 at auction.
