Victoria and Gary Millward, owners of JK's Bar in Cannock, spotted the artist, known as Title, had created a portrait of Colonel Tom Moore in Birmingham and asked him to spruce up the business ahead of their reopening on Saturday.

Now during months of closure due to the pandemic the artist created neon pieces of art behind the bar and in the stairwell and the owners have added a revamped old beetle in their beer garden.

Gary said: "He's created a neon UV effect piece in the staircase with lights and skulls, that's the main one, then there's another behind the bar which is like a florescent skull with headphones.

"We were really impressed. I designed all the bar from day one and I always had a vision of a skull but this exceeded my expectation.

"We've also done work to improve an outdoor area, we've got a revamped beetle in the garden, I cut it down the middle and stretched it.

"We want to thank everyone, we've had so much support from people who have helped us free of charge and put hours of work in, it's a big community effort.

"We're excited to open and keen to see what the impact of social distancing will be."
