North London street artist Pegasus has created a tribute piece to Queen Elizabeth II following her death on Thursday.

Located in East London, the piece measures over two metres in size and took just under eight hours for the artist to paint.

"My final Elizabeth II portrait was painted in tribute to our glorious Queen was completed just as the sad news broke,” he explained. "Queen Elizabeth is unique as she has always lived her reputation-defining reign, but now, history stops as we say goodbye to our beloved Sovereign."

A copy of the art was placed outside Buckingham Palace by its creator.

Britain has now entered a period of official mourning ahead of The Queen's state funeral on 19 September.
