ABSTRACT
ROYAL MARINES will be stationed in inflatable boats along the Boat Race course tomorrow after a protester caused last year's race to be halted. Trenton Oldfield swam into the path of the Oxford and Cambridge crews and narrowly avoided being struck by an oar at an event he regarded as elitist. David Searle, the Boat Race executive director, revealed: 'There will be an increased presence on and off the water, including support from the Royal Marines, but as with any security plan, I cannot disclose the exact details.' Oldfield was released from prison in December after serving seven weeks of a six-month sentence for causing a public nuisance on the four-and-a-quarter half mile course. The Metropolitan Police have written to Oldfield to say they were 'keen to facilitate any peaceful protest'. However, Oldfield wrote to The Spectator: 'In spite of the Metropolitan Police's kind offer, I'll probably have a ramble across the Cotswolds instead.'
