DAMIEN Hirst’s statue Verity certainly didn’t wake up with cold feet this morning after she was ‘yarn bombed’ overnight.

The 60ft bronze statue on Ilfracombe sea front appeared to be wearing a pair of stripy, knitted leg warmers this morning.

The April Fools’ Day prank is no doubt one of many to take place across the region today.

Mayor Lynda Courtnadge commented: “Who knows why Verity has been given a rather fetching set of stripy tights? Perhaps it was a student looking to be the next Jean Paul Gaultier? Or maybe someone thought Verity’s legs were looking a little cold? Or finally could there be a more extraterrestrial nature and aliens have decided to pay a visit to an earth resort and leave a thank you?”

If you know who knitted the leg warmers, email sarah.howells@archant.co.uk or call the newsdesk on 01271 345056.
