A new road mural has been created outside Blackpool Victoria Hospital to show support for the staff who work there and it will be permanent as well.
It’s been created outside the Urgent Care Unit on Whinney Heys Road and has been put down to show support for the hospital’s NHS heroes and key workers.
Blackpool Council teamed up with a local business to create the mural on the road and it follows similar murals being painted across Lancashire.
The mural displays a blue love heart and reads ‘BPL [loves] NHS.’
Blackpool Council’s director of community and environmental services, John Blackledge, said: “We are incredibly proud of all the key workers who go above and beyond to help keep Blackpool safe each day and wanted to show our appreciation for them.
“Thanks also go out to our own highways teams who, despite the current situation, have adapted a new way of working and are continuing to deliver essential work across the town, undertaking highways inspections and ensuring roads are safe for key workers, emergency vehicles and residents.”
