A tribute will be created in memory of the eleven men who lost their lives in the Shoreham air disaster nearly 3 years ago.

Adur District Council, working alongside families of the victims have commissioned a series of memorial sculptures which will be installed along the banks of the River Adur.

On 22 August 2015 a Hawker Hunter jet performing aerobatic manoeuvres during the Shoreham Air show crashed onto the A27 in Sussex, killing 11 men and injuring 13 others including the pilot.
