    DId you see the copper at 12.09 at the Camberwell changeover thinking one of the torchbearers was trying to nick the torch? Hilarious.

    Just passed Loughborough Junction on the live feed which i'm watching at work.

    It was ace :D Great atmosphere; much hilarity when the P5 got stuck in the middle of the parade; and everyone booed when the Coca Cola truck went past :cool:

    Fantastic atmosphere - the Lloyds TSB bus got the biggest boo where I was!
    Loved the street carnival afterwards too - will try and post pictures later.

    The Albert crowd were magnificent: loudly cheering the Olympic stuff as it went by, and loudly booing the corporate sponsor bollocks.

    I think I'm going to try and have a squizz at it around Soho or Trafalgar Sq later today :hmm:

    marty21 my gran was in the war with bombs and shit

    they do barrier a lot of the route - I saw barriers in hackney all along Stoke Newington High St, up Church St, and all the way along Homerton High St - I'm assuming there is a team of barrier contractors making an absolute fortune
