- Olympic Torch Relay
Lionheart Security was pleased to be awarded the contract for the Olympic torch relay in Bedfordshire as part of its relay journey around Britain. The Torch was carried by Lewis Hamilton, storied Formula 1 driver, winner of 15 grands prix and previous world champion.
With a capacity crowd of an estimated 75,000 people over three days, the event was one of the largest in the region sponsored by key backers including EasyJet, Arriva, Wates Construction, BP, British Land and London Luton Airport.
Luton council leader, Hazel Simmons, said “Everyone is tremendously honoured and excited. It will also demonstrate the positive diversity among our communities and the regeneration that is taking place”.
