The Olympic Torch Route

The route that the London 2012 Olympic torch relay will take around the UK has been revealed today.

I am proud that the torch will pass through my hometown of Bristol and will cross the iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge. The torch will also be taken through my new home of Leyton and up through Walthamstow on Saturday 21st July.
