Police set up base for race week

Police will be using a new emergency base during the Cheltenham Festival this week.

They will be using Royal Well Park to set up camp to control the flow of thousands of people heading to the town for the races. 

Royal Well Park is one of the busiest bus stops in Cheltenham and right in the centre of the town, so is a good place to keep an eye on things.

The base is being used as a trial and could become a permanent fixture is successful.
