Designs have been unveiled for a new memorial in Birmingham to the victims of two terrorist attacks which took place in Tunisian in 2015.

The £750,000 project, which was announced by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in March, will see a memorial in Cannon Hill Park, Edgbaston, to remember victims of the attacks in Sousse and Bardo.

New plans have now been lodged with Birmingham City Council which show how the finished memorial could look (see video above).

London-based architecture practice George King Architects won the tender to design the memorial which will be built on an oval-shaped site, measuring 25 metres by 15 metres and overlooking the park's popular boating lake.

The centre piece of the memorial is a sculpture titled 'Infinite Wave' which the architecture firm said "recreated a single wave formed from 31 individual streams", each one representing the British nationals who lost their lives.

Three militants attacked the Bardo National Museum, in the Tunisian capital Tunis, in March 2015 and killed 22 people including West Midlands solicitor Sally Adey.

Three months later, a single terrorist gunman killed 38 holidaymakers including 30 British nationals in an attack on the Port El Kantaoui resort, outside Sousse.

Among the victims were Wednesbury student Joel Richards, his uncle Adrian Evans and grandfather Pat Evans.

Other fatalities included former Birmingham City player Dennis Thwaites and his wife Elaine and Tamworth mum Sue Davey.

Last year, a consultation was held with the British families affected by the two attacks to allow them to have a say on the preferred location for the memorial.

As they are spread across the UK, Cannon Hill Park was chosen as the site which came closest to meeting the views expressed by the families on location and accessibility.

It is due to open this year.

Documents accompanying the newly submitted plans said: "The purpose of the memorial is to provide a permanent tribute to those who lost their lives in the atrocious attacks in Sousse and Bardo and to offer a place of remembrance, commemoration and reflection for all those affected.

"The proposed design for the memorial is inspired by the fluid geometry of flowing water, frozen in place, as if time has stood still at the moment of the attack.

"This has been chosen not only because of the proximity of the events in 2015 to the sea but also as it represents a symbol of the cycle of life.

"Our sculpture will freeze the water in a single moment to represent how, for the victims of the attacks and their families, time stood still on that day."
