A skip with a difference is hitting the streets of Great Yarmouth this week to celebrate World Book Day.

Great Yarmouth skip company WT Skip Hire has created a landscape on the side of a skip with characters from 20 pieces of children's literature.

The work was created by Norfolk artist Mik Richardson and customers booking a skip through the company may find it arrives on their drive.

TWT Skip Hire director Gary Thurtle says: 'World Book Day is an inspirational idea and really gets children engaged in literature at an early age. Mik's work is a joy to look at, and we thought it would be a great way to connect Mik's imagination with the imagination of local children.

'Once it is completed the skip will be put to work, so will be a mobile piece of art for people across Norfolk and Suffolk to marvel at.'
