Front garden of The Albert's full already
I've heard reports that it's like a touch of the caribbean has come to brixton. Can anyone confirm?
Well there's a steel band in Windrush Square.
any sign of a giant torch spliff?
Not so far
Torch just coming up to Camberwell green.
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.
Passing Barrier Block.
Is it safe for me to leave the house yet?
please show on the doll the places the caribbean touched you
streets are packed.
Depends where you are at present, it's just hit Ritzy square for a handover.
Probably best if I leave it for another half an hour then.
They are past Tesco and well on their way to Clapham now.
*waits patiently for Ed's photos*
I quite enjoyed that.
It was ace 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
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.
I knew I should've taken today off
Everyone on the Lloyds bus had to duck when they went under the bridge I wondered what was happening with the P5
So who were on all these buses?
were the people on the P5 waving to their adoring fans?
No. The driver looked rather embarrassed
Wot no Olympic torch? (Here we are waiting for it)
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
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
