A GRAFFITI artist has put the finishing touches to a much-loved 170m pathway bridge mural.

Tony Brady, known as “Kelzo”, started painting the flood basin wall which joins Sportsman Street in Leigh to land near Parsonage Retail Park at the end of August.

The 48-year-old has included homages to the town including Bickershaw Colliery, Leigh Centurions and First War War Victoria Cross winner Alfred Wilkinson.

The project is titled "Historic Leigh" and was commissioned by the Environment Agency.

In the last two months, Tony, who has been doing graffiti art for 35 years, received regular complements from passing residents and on social media.

He also invited people to share their ideas on what he could paint on the mural and handed out numerous pieces of his own work to children who showed an interest in his art.

Kelzo's work has also featured on television programmes Coronation Street, Eastenders and Happy Valley.

His art appeared in a 1997 film starring Russell Crowe called Breaking Up in an area of the Lower East Side of Manhattan in New York too.

Tony also painted the flood basins on the former Manchester racecourse in Kersal and enjoys working with park groups to spruce up old buildings.
