Bedford coffee house fresco attracts worldwide attention

A fresco based on Michaelangelo's Sistine Chapel painting on the wall of a coffee shop in Bedford has been attracting attention from all over the world.

The replica of Libyan Sibyl took three months to recreate. Artist Iain Carstairs used pigment paint on lime plaster, a technique dating back to about 1500 BC.
