Norfolk artist helps with appeal for missing serviceman
An artist has transformed the back of an unwashed van to help with the search for a missing RAF serviceman.
Rick Minns, from Long Stratton, who is nicknamed Ruddy Muddy, is known for using dirty vehicles as canvases for his work.
And now, the 42-year-old has used his talents to create an image of gunner Corrie Mckeague, who has been missing since September.
He hopes that the unusual appeal, which is on the back of a Flower Vision van, will get people talking about the 23-year-old.
Mr Minns said: 'The van goes to Bury St Edmunds and Sudbury on a daily basis, so hopefully lots of people will see it.

'I just very much hope that it gets the issue back into people's minds and they start talking about it again.'
He said he was approached to do the work last week by a member of the Facebook page set up to find the serviceman.

Mr Mckeague, originally from Dunfermline in Fife, has been missing since a night out in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk on September 24.
The gunner was last spotted on CCTV walking alone and eating takeaway food at 3.20am.
He was seen going into the 'Horseshoe' area, a loading bay area close to Brentgovel Street, and not seen coming out again.
