Olympic Torch Blazes Through Lowestoft

Lowestoft took to the streets today to catch a glimpse of the Olympic Torch as it made its way through the town from the Yarmouth Road to Ness Point to Belvedere Road.

The crowds were biggest at the Orbis Energy centre at Ness Point, where local businessman and amateur photographer Paul Reynolds took this inspiring picture.

The torch will travel from Lowestoft to Wrentham, and on to Southwold, continuing its epic journey around Great Britain. Lowestoft’s torchbearers carried the symbolic flame as the crowds lining the streets cheered them on, creating an incredible atmosphere.

Pakefield residents got their own chance to see the torch as it travelled along London Road South, before heading off up the A12 towards Wangford and Southwold. This once-in-a-lifetime event has really brought the people of Lowestoft, Pakefield and Oulton Broad together, with people waving Union Jacks and souvenir torches to cheer the torchbearers along.
