BBC News –Hundreds create D-Day Arromanches beach art tribute.

Hundreds of volunteers have helped to create 9,000 sand drawings on a beach in France to remember those who lost their lives during the D-Day landings.

Sand was raked within stencils to create silhouettes of civilians, German forces and Allies who died on Arromanches beach on 6 June 1944.

The artwork, called The Fallen, was the brainchild of Bradford sculptors Jamie Wardley and Andy Moss.
