Thousands lined the streets through Ripon on Tuesday to cheer the Olympic torch.

Organisers were thrilled with the turnout, echoed in other towns across Yorkshire where the torch received a rapturous welcome. Some primary schools took their pupils, like these children from Foutntains Primary School, who witnessed an event they will remember for the rest of their lives.

Olympic torch coverage is in this week’s Ripon Gazette pages 19 to 23.
