A mural on the side of a Bristol pub - which was painted over by workmen - has been replaced with a new work.

The painting, on a wall of The Oxford pub in Totterdown, was one of street artist Andy Council's pieces inspired by dinosaurs.

When it was painted over, regulars from the pub began a crowd-funding campaign to have it repainted.

Mr Council is spending the weekend adding new designs to the pub's walls.

"When I heard it had been painted over I thought it was funny because it was an accident and you do come to expect it," he said.
