Members of the community created a Bridge of Light at the Adur Ferry Bridge.

Our video above shows some of the scenes - including the view from above the bridge - as Shoreham remembered the 11 victims on Saturday evening.

Thousands of mourners placed candles in jars and glasses alongside floral tributes on the footbridge in Shoreham High Street from 7.30pm, creating a beautiful scene as the sun set.

The ‘Bridge of Light’ was arranged by the organisers of the town’s River Fest event.

Earlier in the day, thousands of people took to Shoreham Tollbridge for an emotional minute’s silence in memory of the victims..
