A 65 ft statue of a pregnant woman holding a sword could be built in a Devon town.

The sculpture is designed by artist Damien Hirst who wants to erect it in a car park at Ilfracombe harbour.

Hirst has told councillors they can have the statue on loan for 20 years if they grant him planning permission.
