Wes Hardy's painted an amazing bit of 'graffiti' on his garden wall.

The owner of WH Ink Studio on Bulford Road put together the artwork over the last few days 'to pass the time'.

He's put a picture of Prime Minister Boris Johnson with a rainbow, that's come to symbolise support for the NHS and key workers during the coronavirus pandemic.

Wes has told Spire FM that it's not a political statement, it's just touching on public feeling, on a wall in his garden that's due to be demolished soon anyway.

He says he 'couldn't believe' the reaction it's had on social media, and it's even been sent to Boris Johnson directly on Twitter.

Wes's tattoo studio has had to be closed while the outbreak is ongoing, leaving with time to create pieces of art like this.
