Olympic Torch in St Helens caused misery for some

The Olympic torch passed through St Helens a few weeks ago bringing delight to many. The Torch followed a route through the town starting from the East Lancashire road at Windle. It is reported that around 40,000 people turned out to see the torch at various points in St Helens and with the sun shining down the day was considered a success.

On the flip side however we've heard reports from some local businesses in St Helens that they were not informed that access to their business would be closed for several hours. It seems that there had been poor planning by St Helens Council and businesses were left uninformed and unable to operate for many hours that day.

Was your business affected by the days proceedings and if so were you informed well in advance?
