A huge structure of Theresa May flicking the V sign has been erected on the White Cliffs of Dover.
It shows the prime minister dressed in a Union Jack skirt with her two fingers raised towards the channel.
It is unclear who is responsible for its construction near St Margaret's but it has already been taken down.
It comes weeks after the world famous street artist Banksy put up a Brexit mural in the town.
Samantha Stanley said about the Theresa May figure: “They were putting up the scaffolding on Friday and over the weekend but Mrs May went up early this morning.
“They were filming it with a drone when we walked past at about 8.45am.”
One witness, who did not want to be named, said: "I had seen 12 men on the site working here as early as Friday.
"I asked them what they were doing and they said that they were building a tower for a film.
"I think whoever did this must have spent a lot of money. Even hiring this specialist crew would have been expensive."
The structure has been dubbed both hideous and hilarious by locals.
Simon Hare said: “Whether you agree or disagree with Brexit, it was crass, vulgar and insulting to any Europeans coming into Dover on the ferry and a ridiculous message to send to Europe when we are about to start negotiating our exit from the EU!”
Online betting company Paddy Power did something very similar by erecting a huge image of England manager Roy Hodgson in 2012. It stood an impressive 100ft tall.
A National Trust spokesman said: "This is not on land that we own. We have raised this with our partners."
It is thought the land is owned by Bluebirds cafe on the cliff, which was put on the market in November 2016 for £3.5 million.
