A few pics I took showing the Olympic Torch passing through Scunthorpe.

Photos are taken on Oswald Rd showing the build up to the parrade, and then from the roof of my m8’s hotel.

Anyway, regardless of what your thoughts are on the Olympic’s it was a great community event and motivated 27,000 people to come out and line the streets in Scunthorpe alone. A further 10,000 people lined the route in Scawby Brook, Brigg and Wrawby as the torch passed through North Lincolnshire.
