Praise for Olympic Torch relay planners from Lincolnshire Police

POLICE have praised public and local organisations that helped make Wednesday’s torch celebrations a success.

It passed through the Louth and Mablethorpe area seemingly without a hitch.

Assistant Chief Constable Roger Bannister said: “The Olympic torch relay itself is the largest policing event ever seen in the county and the sheer scale and logistics have been met with lots of planning which I am confident has paid off.”
