A mural paying tribute to Captain Sir Tom Moore has been commissioned on the side of a Pallion house.

Despite the piece bordering the land to Gospel Hall, the artwork was not commissioned by the church and the building it is on appears to be empty.

He sadly died at the beginning of February and was given a private send off during a small service on Saturday, February 27.
