VIDEO: Ilfracombe cheers as Damien Hirst's Verity is illuminated
A huge cheer went up in Ilfracombe last night when Damien Hirst's huge statue of a pregnant naked woman wielding a sword was illuminated for the first time.
Supporters of the statue, which has been a controversial addition to the town's pier, held a party attended by hundreds of people.
There was a countdown to the moment the lights were switched on followed by a massive cheer when the statue was lit up.
A fireworks display added to the party atmosphere.
