BANKSY has revealed he is the designer behind Stormzy’s Union Flag stab vest that he wore during his Glastonbury set last night.

The graffiti artist shared a picture of the grime star on Instagram wearing the vest with the caption: “I made a customised stab-proof vest and thought – who could possibly wear this? Stormzy at Glastonbury.”

The 25-year-old headlined the festival at Worthy Farm last night – becoming the first black British solo artist to top the bill at Glastonbury since it began in 1970.

While wearing the vest, the Londoner took a swipe at Tory leadership hopeful Boris Johnson during his explosive set.

Performing his recent hit Vossi Bop, Stormzy rapped: “I could never die, I’m Chuck Norris.”

The crowd completed the lyrics, chanting: “F*** the government and f*** Boris.”

HISTORY IN THE MAKING

The set was broadcasted uncensored on BBC Two.

The Croydon-born rapper wrote the stab vest on the iconic Pyramid Stage last night as Britain fights a bloody knife-crime epidemic with 30 blade-related deaths in London since the start of 2019.

While last year was the capital’s bloodiest in almost a decade, as the number of homicides reached 135.

The youngest victim of London’s knife crime horror was 14-year-old Jaden Moodie.


Stormzy’s historic set opened with a video featuring Jay-Z, before he took to the stage to begin with a performance of his 2015 track Know Me From.

Once onstage he said: “This is the greatest night of my entire life.

“And we’re only getting f****** started, I promise you that.”
