A fake blue plaque commemorating the late comedian Rik Mayall appeared in west London last night.

The circular sign, reading "Rik Mayall punched his friend in the balls on a bench near this spot" was attached to a barrier in Hammersmith, the Independent reported.

It was complete with a QR code which links users to a YouTube video of the opening titles to Mayall's sitcom Bottom.

The sequence shows Mayall punching co-star Ade Edmondson in the groin.
