The Olympic Torch comes to Croydon

After weaving its way around the country, the Olympic Torch is on the verge of travelling through our town.

Today the flame will enter the borough in Upper Norwood, thread its way toward North End stopping briefly at the Town Hall before heading to St Andrews School and out towards Sutton.
