Pavement artist Julian Beever puts finishing touches to Olympic torch design in Leicester
Pavement artist Julian Beever put the finishing touches to his city centre artwork last night.
The Melton-born master has been commissioned to produce a 3D image to mark the Olympic torch relay passing through the county.
Julian, 52, a former art teacher, who is now asked to create artworks all around the world, said: "I've enjoyed doing it and lots of people have been stopping and chatting.
