The stencil graffiti, which reads: “Tomorrow will be a better day”, has been spotted on the perimeter wall of the 100-acre Northern General Hospital site as well as on a former accommodation building on Penistone Road, close to Kelham Island.

Tomorrow Will Be A Good Day was the title of the Second World War veteran’s bestselling autobiography, which was released in September after he raised more than £32 million for the NHS by walking 100 laps of his garden before his 100th birthday on April 30 last year.

He died at Bedford Hospital on February 2 after testing positive for Covid-19.
