    I took these on the smart phone at 9.00 am today.

    The turn out for the relay was something incredible.

    I ran after the relay for a mile, and got some photos of the torch bearers and of the flame being passed to the next torch bearer in the "kiss".

    After the relay had passed, some folks waved at anything passing by!

    Here are photos from yesterday's torch relay through Bromley.

    These are of the lead up, with the Razz Matazz by the sponsors - a bit like a moving warm up act for the crowds.

    I keep thinking of the song with the line My old man said follow the van and don't dilly dally on the way

    I ran after, and caught up with, the torch bearer. It was partly uphill, and about 3/4 of a mile. I'm not too fit!

    Great photos Richard....it's getting so exciting!

    Loved that video too....do you know if they got back the same torch they ran with? Maybe they let them cool down, then put that cloth bag on them?

    I would add my thanks as well. We should make you our Honorary Olympics Moderator Richard! I hope you are planning to take in some of the venues during the Games so we can get your unique perspective.

    Yes, I believe they were given the torches they ran with. Before the torches are handed out, they are decommissioned. IE, the gas cylinder and jet for the flame are removed. I hope the torches cool off quickly

    Yesss, Hayles. It sounds as if the opening ceremony will be spectacular. Those cynics who know nothing of what's in store should wind their necks back in:O
