Cost of Olympic Torch Procession

The request was partially successful.

Dear King's Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council,

Please can you tell me the cost to the council for allowing the
Olympic Torch to pass through the area covered by the council?

Please could you provide a breakdown of the costs such as extra pay
for staff, extra cost of policing, road closures, branded bunting
and other associated costs.

In addition, could you tell me what income, if any, was earned from
the procession from parking, selling advertising space etc

And finally, if you did have any grant funding or sponsorship, can
you tell me how much was provided by LOCOG?

I would like this information in electronic form. If you require
further clarification, please let me know.

Yours faithfully,

Juliet Ferguson

Richard Mann, King's Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council

Did not answer the question fully. Cost was shown but not grants or LOCOG Contribution and no mention of any income was given. The Answer simply does not include all the information requested.
