The families of a couple from Wiltshire who were killed in the Tunisia shootings are to be asked about the design and location of a new memorial to mark their deaths.

Eileen Swannack from Biddestone near Chippenham and her partner John Welch from Corsham were killed in the attack at the holiday resort of Sousse just over a week ago.

The Prime Minister announced a permanent memorial to all of the victims will be created.

David Cameron also announced that a special service would be held in the autumn dedicated to all those caught up in the attack on the Tunisian resort of Sousse which left 30 British holidaymakers dead.

Those who lost their lives in Tunisia last week were innocent victims of a brutal terrorist atrocity.

It is right that we mark and commemorate them and others murdered by terrorists overseas appropriately and support the loved ones they have left behind in every way we can.

– David Cameron, Prime Minister
