Bittern and Wherry Hare and Funny Bunny can be spotted in the new painting - called Haring By - which Mr Cringle completed over two hours at Norwich Railway Station on Tuesday.

The work - which Mr Cringle has gifted to Break to help raise funds for the charity - shows the pair of GoGo stars in their places at the station on the GoGoHares city trail which has been brought to Norwich by Break and Wild in Art to celebrate Break’s 50th anniversary.

Mr Cringle, 46 and from Buxton, is also the artist behind Bittern and Wherry Hare which is sponsored by Greater Anglia.

Funny Bunny, created by Deven Bhurke, has been sponsored by East of England Co-op.
