A white van driver has created an amazing portrait of BBC Norfolk presenter Nick Conrad on the back of one of his work vans.

Rick Minns - under the alias Ruddy Muddy - used a white Transit van from his employer Flowervision in Bowthorpe to paint a picture of Mr Conrad and raise awareness of his Children in Need fundraising run.

Mr Minns said: 'I kind of sketched it with a finger and just used tissue paper to remove the rest of the mud cleanly to make the picture.

'It was probably about half an hour for the whole thing I guess.

'I sketched it out yesterday evening and then I took the van into work this morning and wiped out all the bigger patches just to leave the final image.'

Dubbed 'grafilthy', Mr Minns has depicted winter landscapes, children playing in the snow and a ship cutting through choppy seas in previous works.

Mr Conrad is currently running the Norfolk Coastal path from Hunstanton to Cromer, to raise money for the charity.
