Somme shrouds show first day death toll

Some 19,240 figures have been laid out in a park in Exeter to represent the huge death toll on the first day of the Battle of the Somme.

Each 12in (30cm) figure represents a British soldier who was killed at the start of one of the bloodiest battles of World War One.
