Church goers kept from Sunday services by half-marathon street closures
CHURCH goers have slammed marathon marshalls for blocking their route to Sunday service.
Members of Colchester’s Salvation Army found their path blocked by the third annual Colchester Half Marathon on Sunday when they were refused access to East Hill.
Organisers of the event said they had sought written permission from all of the town’s churches and had given ample notice.
