The Norwich Lanes are alive with colour as the Tesco Metro loading bay has been transformed with a quirky design by Norfolk-based illustrator Julia Allum.

The latest mural is inspired by Art Deco travel posters and features Norwich landmarks and local scenes.

Ms Allum said: 'Norwich BID's mural project is a wonderful idea, it brightens up the city and it's a great way to showcase local artists' work.

'There is such a wealth of talent in the city so I was stunned, yet delighted, when I heard one of my designs had been chosen.'
