Was driving through Ballasalla earlier this afternoon (about 4pm) and noted 4 armed police vehicles on the roundabout in to the Balthane, along with other police vehicles parked outside the Nissan garage. I'm sure there was a sign that said 'Police Training' up.

What confused me more was the presence of the Lt Gov's chauffeur car in the training. I'd suggested in another thread that there was discussion between Lt Gov and Gary about a senior royal visit upcoming and wonder if this was training prep for such...?

Not sure about now, but the previous Lt Gov had a former CID chap as his driver..may he knew more than the current trainer..

The current and two previous govs all have the same driver. He's never been a rozzer.

I knew the Lt Gov’s valet/driver in the mid 80’s. There was a staged defensive driving/kidnap exercise held every year. I suspect this is just the same. Common in royal/diplomatic protection situations.
