Arromanches beach art tribute to D-Day fallen by Bradford artists

Two Bradford sculptors have been joined by hundreds of volunteers to create 9,000 sand drawings on a beach in France to remember those who lost their lives there during the D-Day landings.

The drawings of civilians, German forces and Allies who died on Arromanches beach on 6 June 1944 were created using sand stencils.

Called The Fallen, the artwork was the brainchild of Jamie Wardley and Andy Moss and was unveiled at the weekend to mark International Peace Day.

The silhouettes were later erased by the incoming tide.
