A graffiti tribute to the late Only Fools And Horses actor Roger Lloyd-Pack brought a smile to passengers' faces when it was spotted on the side of a train.

The street art, showing the name Trigger, the character played by 69-year-old Lloyd-Pack in the popular BBC sitcom, dominated the side of a Southern train carriage, while the show's logo was adapted to say Rest in Peace.

Architect Andrew Paulson, who posted a picture of the mural on his Twitter feed, said: "I don't condone graffiti, but had to smile at this one at Tonbridge station today."

Southern said the train had been taken out of service and that the graffiti was being removed.

Stella Morris, Southern's head of revenue protection and security, said: "Whilst the sentiment may be welcomed by some, this is criminal damage which is being investigated by British Transport Police."

Lloyd-Pack had pancreatic cancer and died at home in London last week surrounded by his family, his agent Maureen Vincent said.

Following his death, Lloyd-Pack's sitcom co-star Sir David Jason said: "I was very saddened to hear of Roger's passing. He was a very quiet, kind and unassuming actor who was a pleasure to work with.

"Although he played the simple soul of Trigger in Only Fools And Horses, he was a very intelligent man and a very fine actor capable of many roles. I shall remember him with fondness and for all the good times we had together."
