MYSTERY artists created their giant masterpieces on Weston beach at the weekend.

Pictures appeared right across parts of the sands over the bank holiday and iwitness24 correspondent Martin Slade took these photos.

The creations, which included familiar seaside themes of ice-creams, seahorses and seagulls, as well as less familiar sights in Weston of palm trees and dinosaurs, were several feet in height in places.
