The drawings feature prominently on the pavement along Gentleman's Walk, as well as around Carrow Road and Koblenz Avenue in preparation for Norwich City's first home Championship fixture against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

They are part of the '#IWalkedAway' campaign, launched on June 21, which focuses on those who have suffered due to relationships with abusive partners and urges victims to seek help from support agencies, family and friends, and is working in conjunction with the Norfolk County Community Safety Partnership.

The NCCSP is urging those who fear that they or their loved ones are suffering from domestic abuse to contact a confidential 24-hour helpline on 0808 2000 247.
