Giant sand sculpture urges holidaymakers to stay safe on MOD training ground

Depicting an oversized military vehicle, the sand sculpture was brought to life on Saunton Sands beach in Devon, an area steeped in military history and adjacent to the Braunton Burrows Training Estate.

The artwork launches the next phase of the Respect the Range campaign, a public safety initiative to warn visitors about the very real risks they face when entering shared land used by the MOD for training.

Risks include live firing, unexploded ordnance and fast-moving military vehicles.
