A giant Spanish flag made up of red, yellow and black umbrellas brought a huge splash of colour to Bournemouth beach today.

A total of 660 parasols were used to make up the mosaic which took 30 people six hours to construct.

The flag, measuring 165ft by 100ft, was commissioned by Three UK to announce its customers can now use their phone abroad at no extra cost in Spain from April 1 this year.

Passer by Josie Greene, 44, of Bournemouth, said: "It looks amazing - it's huge.

"You sometimes see unusual sights on the beach at this time of year like the odd person going for a swim but nothing as spectacular as this."

Three has revealed it is adding both Spain and New Zealand to its existing 16 destinations where you can use your phone to call, text and use the internet abroad at no extra cost.

These two new destinations will join other popular destinations such as France, USA, Australia and Italy.

Dave Dyson, chief executive at Three, said: "Adding France last year and Spain in 2015 to our list means the two most popular destinations with British holiday makers will be covered.

"My ambition continues to be to eliminate excessive roaming charges globally and we're working hard to open up even more opportunities for our customers to stay connected and enjoy their phones whilst they're abroad."
