Yesterday along with several thousand others we headed into Whitehaven to watch the Olympic Torch Relay as it passed through the town. It was forecast to rain, but thankfully during the relay it didn’t really come to much.
This picture from The Whitehaven News gives an idea of the number of people on Lowther Street
We decided to stand on the slightly less crowded harbour front
The town had been decorated with London 2012 banners
We saw the final leg where the torch was carried by Shameem Arnold
