SLIDESHOW: See the whole Olympic Torch Relay through Lewes

IT WAS an historic day as the Olympic Torch Relay passed through Lewes yesterday (Tuesday July 17) and Sussex Express photographer Peter Cripps captured every moment of it.

From the fantastic vantage point of the media truck, which travelled in front or the torchbearers along the whole route, he took hundreds of pictures.

Watch the slideshow and see the whole event, from the start at Earwig Corner as the torches and runners waited on a bus, and then as the runners carried the flame through Malling Street, Phoenix Causeway, Eastgate Street, High Street, Western Road and Brighton Road.

We hope you enjoy the view from the truck as much as we did.
