Artwork has been completed on an underpass in Peterborough.

One side of the underpass beneath The Serpentine at Hampton provided the canvass for three artists who offered their skills free of charge.

It's taken several weeks to complete and cost the artists hundreds of pounds in paint.

PCSO Matt Lauch, who got permission from local authorities for the project to go ahead, said: "We have found that underpasses painted in this way generally go untouched and there is much less graffiti."
