Well the day finally arrived the 15th of June 2012 and the Olympic Torch passes within a few hundred yards of my house , so the rain had stopped and the gathered crowds awaited , as you can see by the first pic no traffic in either direction, as the torch neared first the Police Motorcyclists heralded it's arrival but this also heralded the arrival of all sorts of traffic coming in the opposite direction talk about chaos people crossing the road to get a better view as now the view was blocked by cars who by now had a good view as they sat in the warm and dry while the torch passed , so in true press fashion I stepped into the road risking life and limb to get the scoop as a good Blogger should. It all passed rather quickly except for the X4 Newcastle bus which was bringing up the rear till it was stopped by Police ............................ to let a lady passenger get on !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
