The work is spread across two walls of the garage. One side shows a child seemingly enjoying snow, but the other shows a fire emitting ash onto the child. 

One fan, who had travelled from Wiltshire to look at it said: "I think it's in Port Talbot for a reason. Banksy tends to place his work where it means something."
