THE dragon carving outside Taunton’s main library has been fixed after vandals damaged the sculpture last year.

The dragon, widely recognised as the county’s symbol, had part of its face and right ear knocked off.

Sculptor Philip Thomason, who designed the dragon, made from clay with stainless steel rods inside, said it took two days to fix.

He said: “The dragon has been there 18 years and it’s totally accessible to the weather and the public, so it has done very well not to be damaged so far in that time.

Meanwhile the Somerset County Council's leading Tory group of vandals continue to slash and burn our libraries and other vital public services; and continue privatising everything that's left!

They even have the temerity to describe the latest cuts to Wellington library, as an 'upgrade'!

Don't just get angry get organised!
