A house in Banwell has become part of a tribute to the armed forces put together by street artist D-NEK.

Ahead of Remembrance Sunday, the talented street artist painted a picture of a soldier guarding over the village’s war memorial. The same image has also been painted near Apple Taxis in Alexandra Parade, Weston, and in Chapel Street in Burnham.

D-NEK told the Mercury: “The soldier’s name is George, the artwork comes from a picture taken after his first contact with the Taliban. This is my tribute to all of our armed forces.”
