A MYSTERY plasterer who emblazoned the words "I love my job" on an Ipswich building has revealed his identity.

Ian Turner, of Arundel Way, said he was shocked to see his handiwork appear in The Evening Star.

The 39-year-old said: "It did surprise me to see it, writing something on undercoats is something I have always done."

Mr Turner, who isn't a football fan continued: "We were thinking of putting Ipswich next to an arrow pointing down and Norwich with an arrow pointing up – but we didn't think it would go down very well."

Other amusing messages he has written on undercoats include "Merry Xmas" in the height of the summer.

He also confirmed that the statement was an honest remark and not an ironic comment.
