An abandoned Ilfracombe shelter has had a festive makeover thanks to a local artist.

Daniel Kehily-Jones was walking his dogs on the Tarka Trail near Pall when he spotted the shelter and decided it needed a Christmas look.

His design featuring Dr Seuss' The Grinch has proved an instant hit with locals and attracted lots of good comments on Facebook.

Daniel is from Ilfracombe and works as a freelance artist and also for Barnstaple screen-printing company A4 Apparel, as well as running his own Silk Crystal street art brand.

He told the Gazette his shelter work was just a quick design and he would have spent more time on it if he'd realised it would attract such attention - but most posting on social media already think it is great.

His work is quite visible around the area - he completed a mural for 14 Tattooing in Ilfracombe, as well as live spray painting and screen printing workshops at festivals, including GoldCoast Oceanfest.

Many walls at The Milky Way Adventure Park are covered in his work, as well as its Star Wars exhibition with Star Wars themed paintings.

Other work includes an underwater-themed mural at the Captains Table Restaurant in Woolacombe.
