Pattern Matching %20 in url

I have several urls that have %20''s in the actual url.  I want a regex that will point it to the correct page.  I can get it to work with the first 3 letters but don't know how to add in the %20.  I have tried \W and \s but to no avail.

If it is working correctly then a url with function.php shouldn't be matched.

This is an example url in question.
funct%20in%20/var/www/html/modules/cdseolinks/function.pa%20in%20/var/www/html/modules/cdseolinks/function.parse-url

Here is what I have.

RedirectMatch 301 ^/fun\s(.+?)$ /help.php

By the way, the ideal thing I know already but I don't have any support on that program to know how to fix the problem.  So that is why I am resorting to a pattern match.  Rather than getting the program to quit putting the erroneous characters into the urls when it is spidered.

Thanks,

I can't see how the help.php in your regex is related to your example URL.

Not really sure what you're asking for. I assumed you wanted things starting fun and ending with /help.php which might have the grouping %20 in them.

This should match %20 without matching %something_else...
fun((%20)|[\s\w\/\.\-])*\/help.php

that matches the %20 perfectly and /or a space.  So that is great.
