Residents of Swanage knelt on the sands this weekend to show their solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.

The peaceful protest took place in the town on Saturday, with participants proceeding through Swanage to spread the message of "institutionalised racism in the UK and the importance of the fight towards unity and equality".

All over the country people have been showing solidarity with the black community after the death of George Floyd.

Mr Floyd died when a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck while other officers stood nearby and watched.

He died nearly minutes later, with his death sparking protests all over the world against racism and police brutality against black people.

If you're at the protest today we'd love to see your photos of the event. Click the button to send them in to us, and please include a name and contact phone number.
