The video shows three men working on the spray-paint murals on the Bridge of Doom near Hibs' Easter Road stadium, while another man, believed to be Irvine, holds the camera.

Bradley was known to be a life-long Hibs fan along with friend Irvine.

Another mural has also appeared on a fence towards the rear of the East Stand at Easter Road.

Irvine had earlier paid tribute to Bradley on his Twitter account, saying: "Bradley John Welsh, my heart is broken. Goodbye my amazing and beautiful friend. Thanks for making me a better person and helping me to see the world in a kinder and wiser way."
