An "incredible" mural painted in the colours of Ukraine's flag to help promote peace and unity has appeared on a shop in Cambridgeshire. 

The artwork can be seen on the side of Millfield Convenience Store on Lincoln Road, Peterborough.

It shows a white dove breaking through some chains, with two open hands painted in Ukrainian flag colours.

Below the dove is another pair of hands painted in a Palestinian flag.

"This is about finding peace in all places that need it. Thanks to my guy Shaiaid and Zaffer for help making this happen."

Residents loved the mural calling it "incredible" and "truly amazing".
