Today a little bit of history was made as the Olympic torch came to the town where I work. Luckily I managed to get a really good spot so not only did I get to see the torch I also got some good pictures too.
The crowds lined the street as we waited for the torch to arrive.
Before the torch came the Olympic team sent a team of runners to clear the way and to excite the crowd.
I was really close to it!
The runner is interviewed for TV.
