BBC NEWS | Beach statues set to leave coast

BBC NEWS | Beach statues set to leave coast

Anthony Gormley's Another Place is to be removed over health and safety fears. This seems a gave the area real character.

I suppose they should also get rid of the Mersey Wave in case motorists are distracted and crash or the Super Lamb Banana in case someone climbs it and falls off.

The world will be a pretty dull place if everything that can possibly cause someone to injure themselves is taken away. Those statues made an otherwise non-descript section of Crosby beach a national tourist attraction. Art exhibits like that and the aforementioned wave and, erm, banana are what make the place unique.
