A CITY centre alleyway has had a splash of colour added.

Oxford street artist Jason Howarth spray painted a “sea life” mural for the Carfax Fish and Chips shop off the High Street.

Mr Howarth, 43, said he approached the fast food shop and asked them if he could do it.

And he said the mural was now another attraction for the city’s tourists.

Mr Howarth, of Whitehouse Road, said: “I wanted to make it look like a sea life centre.

“It’s a very historical place in the centre but the wall is absolutely stunning. It’s very colourful.

“Before it was just a white wall.

“The people from the chip shop really like it. So far the response has been amazing.”
