report on behalf of larger GRB collaboration:

The 2-m Faulkes Telescope North observed the field of the INTEGRAL
GRB 080613 (Gotz et al. GCN Circ. 7871) starting 3.9 min after the
trigger time.
We detect an uncatalogued, likely fading source in R (~19 mag)
also visible in B and i' bands and not visible in the DSS,
within the offline INTEGRAL error circle at the following position
(J2000):

RA = 14:13:05.02
Dec= +5:10:23.5

Further observations are being taken.
