Post Event Comments:
There was an issue with two gates that became locked during the event. Alan Blanchflower managed to get into the area whilst the gates were open but then found himself locked into the area. I understand he managed to extract himself, but from what I heard I’m glad the H&S police weren’t looking! There were other reports of residents letting some competitors in and out of the gates! Anyway, the scores have been sorted as best I can.
