The Mercury Mall in Romford has transformed the area outside Premiere Cinema into a hue of Victorian inspired street art.

With a little help, the artist, Nigel Hubbard has filled the space with colour, skyline drawings and some Mary Poppins portraits.

Ruby Price, aged 9 said: “I’ve had a really fun time, Nigel has showed me how the blend with the chalks and bring my drawings to life, I wish I was here all day.”

The film tells the story of Michael Banks, who learns that his house will be repossessed unless he can pay back a loan.

He needs to find a missing certificate that shows proof of valuable shares that his father left him years earlier.

Just as all seems lost, Michael and his sister receive a surprise visit from the extraordinary Mary Poppins.
