Norfolk van artist, Ruddy Muddy, has paid tribute to the royal wedding in his own unique way.

Working alongside Damsel Dragonfly, Ruddy Muddy - real name Ricky Minns - created a portrait of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in the dirt on the back of a Peugeot Boxer van.

The artist, from Wicklewood, takes several hours to produce his quirky works of art, using a finger, tissues and cotton buds.

Mr Minns, 42, first started experimenting with the medium 10 years ago, after becoming bored with seeing the words ‘clean me’ written on grubby white vans.

He has gone on to draw a range of portraits of football players, actors and politicians, including Wes Hoolahan and Sir David Attenborough and commemorated the birth of the latest royal baby, Prince Louis.
