PROVOST Tom Kerr has called for an enquiry into the cancellation - after 19 successful years - of the Linlithgow 10K fun run.

He has hit out at both West Lothian Council and Lothian and Borders Police for their inability to process the appropriate permissions in time, branding it ‘ridiculous’ that with discussion starting in January, a licencing application for the September event would not be considered until August.

Both the police and the council are hoping the event can still be salvaged.
