The mural at the back of the old Marks Electrical building in King Richards Road was created after the 5,000 - 1 underdogs were crowned Premier League champions of the 2015/16 season.

It depicted the 12 key players of that period along with manager Claudio Ranieri.

The new owner of the site said he has taken the tough decision to remove the mural but said he wants original artist, Richard Wilson, to recreate the mural in a better location.

A small section of the mural still remains at the front of the building.
