DRIVERS in Taunton are being given a taste of cricket as they travel into and out of the town.

A huge cricket-themed mural is being painted on the side of the landmark Viridor building, at Firepool, alongside Priory Bridge Road.

It is understood Somerset West and Taunton Council is behind the scheme, with Viridor allowing the display to be shown on the building.

The cricket world cup comes to Taunton on June 8, 12 and 17.

This is The West Country:
