What they said then: 'We've spent hours, days and weeks preparing this application. I'm very hopeful it will get a lot of public support.'
Steve Clements - Planning agent
What they say now: 'It isn't suitable for a Victorian seaside town. I think it's disappointing that the money and the ideas couldn't have been spent on a proper attraction to encourage people to come to Ilfracombe all year. I've not said we shouldn't have anything there, but I think the statue might be a two-minute wonder.'
