Poor old Samson and Hercules have been distinctly off colour for the past couple of years while presiding over the entrance to their iconic building on Tombland in Norwich.

Could we please save their blushes and restore their fabric to the more sober colours which favoured these distinguished gentlemen throughout their previous long-standing career?

Oliver Chastney, Lowes Yard, Norwich.

Do Hercules and Samson need a makeover? Let us know in the comments.
