Shoreham Airshow Memorial: Pictures show the story so far as the 11 arches are erected

Work on installing a memorial to the victims of the Shoreham Airshow disaster has entered its latest phase with the erection of 11 unique arches.

These pictures show the development of the memorial, from design phase to installation, as it prepares to honour the 11 men who tragically lost their lives in 2015.

By September, the foundations for the arches had been put in place on the east bank of the River Adur
