Last race abandoned at Lingfield after bomb scare

Published 18/11/2006

Lingfield's last race was abandoned after a bomb scare prompted an evacuation of the track.

Hot on the heels of what proved to be a hoax at Hexham on Wednesday, officials at the Surrey venue sprang into action after the feature Churchill Stakes.

Everyone on course was instructed to clear the stands and head to the middle of the track while the threat was investigated.
