His picture, which he said had proved ‘quite popular’ so far, shows a group of NHS workers facing a bright rainbow.

He said: “I just thought it would be nice to show them walking off to victory after the end of a shift, to the light at the end of the tunnel.”

Mr Hull, who has worked as a porter for the last four years, said it was a ‘surreal’ time to be working at the hospital, adding: “Everyday is a different challenge.”
