The Olympic Torch in Leeds NE

Thousands of local residents turned out to welcome the Olympic Torch relay when it passed through the constituency on Sunday 24th June 2012. The two photographs shown her show the enthusiastic welcome being given by the crowds on Harehills Lane.

Later Fabian Hamilton said, "I am delighted by the way that such care has been taken to enable so many people to get caught up in the excitement of the Olympic Games. I was so pleased to see that constituents in Leeds North East were able to get so close to the Torch Relay and give a welcome in the way that ony Leeds can."
