Stratford High St, London. Sat 21 Jun 2012
First there were coaches and lorries advertising the sponsors.
People on them tried to generate some enthusiasm by waving and jumping around
But the audience was not greatly interested
The torch itself generated a little more interest. I've no idea who 070 was carrying it, and she handed it over to
071 at the junction with Warton Rd, which leads into the Olympic site a couple of hundred yards away
But of course the torch has a much longer route before it returns to Stratford
Then O71 ambled on with the torch
While a party of people visiting the Olympic site watched from the bridge, with a big wooden torch behind them.
