Almost 45,000 people have visited an iconic poppy sculpture on Southend seafront.

The flowers have been at the Barge Pier in Shoeburyness for four weeks.

The area was chosen to host the exhibit because it was one of the first towns in the country to be targeted by German airships during the First World War.

Called Wave, the installation is one of two sculptures touring the country. They were both part of the Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red exhibit that drew millions of people to Tower of London in 2014.

The exhibition will be on display until the end of June.
