Stunned by lack of Whitby torch bearer

I read with great interest the route of the Olympic Torch procession through the Whitby area.

However, as usual, I’m stunned by the barefaced gall of the Scarborough Borough Council not to have a single Torch bearer from the local area.

I suppose that normal practice of the SBC (does it stand for Scarborough Before Community?) is for the people of Whitby to be treated as mushrooms yet again.
