Yep lill ole Filey on the North east coast UK had THE Olympic torch bearer running thro our town..
The Torch was going all the way down the North East coast & he ran thro the main 2 streets in Filey..
Now if you dont Filey its a quaint ole fishing town..not many fishermen here now few more in
Scarborough..& along the coast ..all the East coast UK has lovely small fishing hamlets,
Whitby, Statheis Scarborough Filey etc.. lots more so to have this memorable scene was amazing..
It was a lovely sunny bit breezy but very nice to stand about waiting..the route was well lined
with lots of gentle folk of Filey, lots of school children were at the end of the route where the
runner was finishing, just as well cos he looked a bit tired but very happy he couldnt stop smiling,
the co runners did a great job too, nice fit healthy looking lads..lol
I managed to get a couple of pics as he was moving at a pace not slow like I thought he would be..
lots of people wanted pics too so thought I did quite well getting these..
even the rear view is impressive.. this camera man guy was from a news team..
Just thought I would share Filey’s 5 mins (well a bit longer than that) of fame..
thanks for looking
