Today is the start of the London Olympics. The Olympic torch has travelled the length of the UK and went to each and every corner of London.
I followed the torch for 3 consecutive days in different parts of London.
Tuesday 24th July: in Brentford, I was privileged to see inspirational torch bearer David Ramsey who suffers from cerebral palsy who is very active in the community working with people with learning difficulties.
This is a screenshot from the BBC website’s live torch relay on 24th July. I’m the one wearing the cap taking a picture on the left hand side.
On Wednesday 25th July 2012 the torch touched North London and I caught the changeover.
On Thursday 26th July 2012 the torch relay went through Oxford Street just minutes after I had finished treating a massage client in Marble Arch. Good timing indeed.
The torch was then brought on top of a double decker bus with Westminster Lady Mayor Councillor Angela Harvey.
