The memorial, at Birmingham’s Cannon Hill Park, features a sculpture entitled ‘Infinite Waves’ which is made up of 31 separate metal strands - representing the 31 British tourists killed in the Port El Kantaoui attack of June 26, 2015 and the Bardo National Museum attack of March 18, 2015.

Seven people were sentenced to life in prison in February over the attacks.

Among the victims of the Port El Kantaoui attack were Felixstowe man Philip Heathcote and father-of-one Stuart Cullen from Lowestoft.

Mr Heathcote’s wife Alison was also shot five times in the attack, and only survived by playing dead to avoid being shot again.
