It was difficult to get good shots because the torch-bearer was hemmed in by support vehicles. Also, after a long procession of sponsored vehicles,whose purpose was rather difficult to define, the actual torch went by in what seemed like seconds.
However, everyone was in a good mood. The sun shone and it was a happy occasion.
Unfortunately, the bright sunshine made it look rather as though the runner had come out in his pyjamas!
