Coe Defends Cauldron's Placement, Says It's Not A 'Tourist Attraction'
Published July 30, 2012
PUTTING OUT THE FIRE: The TELEGRAPH reported LOCOG officials have confirmed that the flame "was extinguished to allow staff to move the cauldron to another part" of the stadium over the weekend. In London, Magnay & Furness noted the "revelation that the flame had to be extinguished in order to move the cauldron will add to the controversy over the location of the flame." Critics have said that it "should have been placed where it would be seen by spectators who did not have tickets to the main stadium" (TELEGRAPH, 7/30).
