A spokesperson said:
"Its with an extremely heavy heart that we have had to make the very difficult decision that last Thursday's tour was the last. Whilst the Police have never condoned the tour, they have been extremely supportive throughout.
"With the tour getting bigger and the roads getting busier we knew we were going to have to make a plan but unfortunately this decision was taken out of our hands by the very small minded minority who just couldn't see the bigger picture, they didn't see the smiles we've seen. They haven't read the messages we've been sent and they didn't see the hope it brought to so many people's lives. Not to mention the thousands of pounds raised in these strange times."
"There's never a truer word spoken that bad news travels faster than good and in this case that small minded minority have ruined it for thousands of people."
"Never have we ever been as proud to say we love the community we serve."
