Morecambe cockling tragedy 20 years on: pictures show touching tributes over the years

Monday February 5 will see 20 years since the Morecambe Bay cockling tragedy which claimed the lives of 23 Chinese cocklers.

Many of the pictures we have chosen to publish here were taken by our photographers at events to mark the 10th and fifth anniversaries of that fateful evening in 2004.

Our thoughts are with all those who lost their lives, and their families and loved ones, as the 20th anniversary approaches.
