IOC Scraps International Torch Relays

Following the shambolic 2008 Olympics international torch relay, which was dogged by security issues, protesters and criticism, the IOC has banned it for future games.

The London 2012 Olympics will see a torch relay, but one that will never leave the British Isles.

In theory the 2012 British torch relay will use a route that will ensure that 95% of the UK's population will be no more than an hour away from seeing it at some point during it's journey....the UK's failing/overburdened transport infrastructure and security measures permitting that is!
