(Classic Rock) Wilko Johnson's portrait has been added to the signage of his local pub. The Railway Hotel in Southend now features an image of the terminally-ill guitarist, who refused chemotherapy after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

"Over the last year I have become a bit of a regular and, believe me, it's a good place to be," Johnson tells the BBC. "I love the Railway Hotel. This thing they've done, putting my mush up outside, well, what can I say? What an honour immortality!"

Landlord Dave Dulake says: "Everybody seems chuffed to bits. Wilko sums up the spirit of the place, the way he's taken the news of his illness." more on this story
