'Melting' mud WW1 sculpture unveiled in Trafalgar Square

A "melting" mud sculpture has been unveiled in Trafalgar Square.

The end of July 2017 marks the centenary of the Battle of Passchendaele in which almost 500,000 men were killed, injured or went missing.

The statue is near the home of two brave VC recipients killed on the first day of the battle.
