Drivers working for a haulage firm in March are taking part in a unique art project.
Each long-haul driver is driving a lorry with a 30 feet wide portrait of their family on the side.
The aim of the "Take Me With You" project is to remind motorists that lots of people are now needed to work away from their homes and families for long periods of time.
A number of drivers working for Salvage Haulage Ltd have got the pictures on the side of their trucks.
Richard Cox, managing director of HaulinAds, which provided the expertise needed to put the pictures on the side of the trucks said: "My role was to help Mat and Manuel [photographers] turn the amazing images that they’d taken and the emotive text provided by the children into powerful, truck-side art installations.
The Take Me With You campaign will appear on the sides of four of Savage Haulage’s trucks between now and April 15.
It means that, for the next three months, the four truck drivers chosen to take part - Ramos, Paul, Lindsey and Andy - will literally be taking their families with them wherever they go!"
