Let them vote on statue
SIR - I do not like the Damien Hirst statue that is being foisted onto Ilfracombe but do concede that if public opinion is in favour, it should go ahead.
However there is much controversy over the statue and it seems to me that the fairest way forward would be to give the people of Ilfracombe a vote on the matter.
Otherwise, North Devon Council, which is supposed to represent Ilfracombe and surrounding areas, will do as it often does and ignore public opinion. The Landmark Theatre comes to mind!
