Our own Colossus?

SIR – I do like Damien Hirst’s sculpture and do hope the planning authorities give it the go ahead.

It reminds me of pictures I have seen in the past of the Colossus of Rhodes, astride the harbour, holding a lantern on an outstretched arm.

Shall we have a ‘Colossus of Ilfracombe’? Yes please.

RD Raby, Ilfracombe.
