I had a great position today when the Olympic Torch came to Cleethorpes. This is a pic of the torch exchange that took place today (26/06/2012).

How cool, Glynn. We just hosted the Winter Olympics here a couple of years ago, and the torch came through our town and there was also a celebration. The night was New Year's Eve and the weather was -30C. It was freakin' cold, but freakin' wonderful. Congrats on the photos too! :-)

Thanks everyone. I only got the picture because someone thought I was press and pushed me towards the other photographers - I wasn't going to say no :roll: :wink: :lol:

Look out for my Olympic Torch slideshow in the next few days.
