Olympic flame arrives at Foxton Locks

The Olympic torch came to Foxton Locks in Leicestershire on 2nd July. 

The torch bearer, Rob Gomez, a local cricket club chairman and charity fund raiser, travelled aboard the historic Cowburn & Cowpar working boat Swift, down and through one of the famous locks at Foxton, where he was met by Canal and River Trust chairman Tony Hales. 

Despite the wet weather a good crowd of local people gathered around Foxton Locks to welcome the torch to the waterways.
