‘Ridiculous’ race move
After an enjoyable afternoon at York Races last Friday with friends we set off to walk back to the city centre.
When we got to Albemarle Road we found our usual walk back through Scarcroft Hill and Scarcroft Green blocked off by policemen and police tape.
Instead the large crowds were sent on up Albermarle Road to The Mount and then along The Mount and Blossom Street.
Albermarle Road was very busy with traffic which people had to dodge away from regularly. Crossing Scarcroft Road was also not easy given the large number of people and one person was nearly hit by a coach.
Who made this ridiculous decision to stop racegoers returning to the city through a very safe pedestrian route and instead sent them on a very dangerous route given the large numbers involved?
This needs looking in to before the even bigger crowds at the races this summer.
