A mural in memory of Captain Sir Tom Moore has been painted across the back wall of the Little Beech pub in Blackheath, showing his name in red and a full drawing of the fundraiser and army veteran,

The mural appeared on the wall at the pub on Halesowen Street following Sir Tom's death on February 2 and people from all over the town have since come to lay flowers and pay their respects.

One local woman, who did not want to be named, said she had been told about the mural by her son and had wanted to go down and see it.

She said: "I've been staying at home because of Covid, but I went up to see it the Sunday after Captain Tom had died and put some flowers down.

"I couldn't believe how many flowers there were as my son had told me there were tributes there, but it's more than I imagined and there are flowers from across the world."

She also said that she didn't know who had done the mural, but wanted to thank them for such a beautiful tribute.

She said: "It's really good and I think it really shows up the people saying things about him online.

"I think it was wonderful what he did and it was a journey for him as to do it one day is good, but to keep going for 100 days is incredible.

"I don't know the person that did this, but they are clearly very talented and I think it's a fitting tribute to a lovely man."

The mural can be seen at the Little Beech, Halesowen Street, Blackheath
