Olympic Torch Relay goes through Rayleigh
10:41am Friday 6th July 2012 in News
THE Olympic Torch was met by crowds of people in Rayleigh.
People began massing in the High Street and London Road from 9am this morning ahead of the torch reaching the town at 10.20am.
The wet weather didn't put people off seeing the once-in-a-lifetime event and brollies and waterproofs were at the ready.
Excited crowds cheered on the torchbearers as they made their way through - even taking part in a Mexican wave!
