What did the police do? Well some of them just stood there and watched. Some of them exited a nearby plane and joined in.
How times have changed!

For the next five days the flame will be touring this island, yes it even takes a morning sightseeing in Dublin. Which may well account for all the Northern Irish Olympians in team Northern Ireland. I may have to let you know a little bit more about them later as they will be spread across two teams.
But the flame is here. Well okay it is currently up in Belfast, but tomorrow it will pass within 200m of our house. But I may be up to catch it downtown a little earlier than that. Looking for some good locations to take pictures of it passing me. Sadly I suspect this will be the closest I get to the Olympics. But I'm looking forward to it.
