Graffiti artist Hendog has returned with a new mural which is ingeniously tucked away under a city wall.

The anonymous artist has painted a teddy bear under a blanket next to a campfire which fits neatly between missing brickwork on St Cross Road.

It's understood that the section of the wall, which is opposite the bus stop outside the walls of Chernocke House, was built to accommodate the large stump of an old tree.

The tree came down in recent years leaving the perfect canvas for the artist's latest work.

This follows a similar piece painted on the gates of the former Early and Sons coal merchants on Chesil Street.

The building, not in commercial use since the mid-1980s, is set to be demolished when the Chesil Theatre builds an extension next to its base in the medieval church.

It featured two posters with the words 'Missing: have you seen my bear? Hendog'.
