The Pavement Poet, Daniel Rowland, has chalked up a few verses for York overnight.

Daniel travels the world writing thousands of poems on pavements.

He has written several poems in King’s Square in his trademark coloured chalks. You can catch them now, before the rain or various vehicles obliterate his art.
