Hirst statue to get information board.

THE go-ahead has been given for a stainless steel mount and interpretation board to give people information about Ilfracombe giantess Verity.

The information board will be positioned on the opposite side of the harbour in the gardens on Marine Drive, directly in line with Damien Hirst’s 67-foot bronze sculpture on the pier.

North Devon Councillors unanimously approved the proposal at a planning meeting on Wednesday.

The metre-tall information board will be finished in satin black with an angled interpretation board finished in vitreous enamel and cast bronze plate.
