Digger Dyer has had many Leicester celebrities grace his barbers chair
Digger Dyer, who runs Digger & Company Men's Hairstylist close to Hawthorne Street in Leicester, is taking part in the project called The Street.
BBC Leicester's Tony Wadsworth launched the project after 'adopting' the street in Newfoundpool - the area where he grew up as a child.
The Street project takes a closer look at the lives behind closed doors and the community that is shared.
Digger runs the business on Beatrice Road with his brother Tony Dyer.
Digger Dyer the local barber
Digger has cut the hair of many local celebrities.
These include, Leicester's fashion guru Gok Wan and Snooker player Mark Selby.
Digger's interest in cutting hair started at the age of 13 when his grandfather asked him to cut his hair.
His talents, however, does not end there. Digger also enjoyed performing on stage too. He liked to sing and perform stand-up comedy too.
Digger claims the shop formerly belonged to the uncle of Joseph Merrick, who is also known as The Elephant Man. Digger believes Joseph's uncle lived at the property for a short period.
Geoff Connolly from 88 Hawthorne Street has been having his haircut there for around 25 years, his father was also a regular visitor.
