Just when you thought Olympic fever may have passed Leith by, up pops a real live actual Olympic torch, replete with local bearer in London 2012 tracksuit in Montgomery Street Park.
The torch belonged to Scott Richards, a local scout leader, who lives near the park. He ran with the torch through Berwick Upon Tweed.
Scott was nominated to run as an Olympic Torch bearer because he of all the voluntary work he does to support local young people through the Scouts, and his local primary school, where he is a member of the school fundraising committee.
Locals at the “Picnic in the Park” event were delighted to be able to hold and touch a real live Olympic torch.
