An artist is desperately trying to find out what has happened to her 4ft-high painting of Harry Potter after it went missing in the post.

Hannah Weston, of Norwich, said it took her several days over two months to complete the painting of the boy wizard.

The 26-year-old, who works as a tattoo artist in the city, had originally planned to keep the painting but decided to sell it to a buyer in Orpington.

However the stunning painting, which is worth £700, never made it from her house to the Parcelforce depot in Norwich.

Ms Weston said it is 'incredibly disheartening' knowing that something she put 'so much time, energy and passion into' can go missing.
