Comedian and actor Rik Mayall brought one of his most colourful creations to the streets of Wakefield back in the 1980s.

Rik died suddenly, aged 56, on Monday.

He was best known for his role as the anarchic people’s poet Rick in the cult BBC comedy The Young Ones and Bottom, the slapstick sitcom about hapless losers Richard ‘Richie’ Richard and Edward ‘Eddie’ Hitler, alongside his friend Adrian Edmondson.
