The Torch in Earlswood

Mum and I went early this morning to see the Olympic torch pass through Earlswood, Solihull, West Midlands, UK.  It perhaps would have been closer to go into Solihull itself to see the torch, but this was a little too early for a Sunday (7am-ish).  As it was we set off at 8am to get there an hour early so we got a good view.
There were a few sponsorship floats/coaches which passed through first and then a police motorcade and two coaches with the torchbearer and runners inbetween.  The flame most definitely was alight when it passed but you can't tell from these photos.
Have you been to see the torch pass near you or are you going to go?  I would recommend it.
