Police praise rally crowds

POLICE from the Coffs/Clarence Local Area Command have praised the behaviour of rally-goers during the weekend's 10th leg of the World Rally Championships near Coffs. 

With thousands of extra visitors to the area between last Thursday and Sunday, police launched Operation Lexington to maintain order and safety during the event.

Coffs Clarence Superintendent Mark Holahan said although there had been a few reported incidents, police were impressed with the overall crowd behaviour and the smooth running of the event.

However with many visitors still leaving the area, Supt Holahan said there would continue to be a strong police presence on local roads and the highways.

"For those who are leaving in the next few days we urge you to drive with care and to the conditions so you reach your destination safely," Supt Holahan said.
