It finally arrived, in a blaze of Olympic glory the torch was welcomed to Preston.


Local photographer Bernie Blackburn was up early to capture the scenes as it made its way through the city.

While we waited for the torch, Blog Preston’s co-editor Ryan Owen Gibson had written a piece for The Guardian about the torch arriving in Preston.
