0849: For the first time today, the torch goes into convoy mode as the relay leaves Plymouth for the short hop to Brixton.
Mostly, no captions.
At 8.15 am, the crowd was not so many .....
Half-an-hour later, police outriders blocking the side roads for the 'lead' convoy to come through .....
"Torch Relay Bus 2".
Sponsors, Coca Cola - it was the source of the music we heard .....
Lloyds TSB sponsors' staff, giving out their colours to children to wave.
It can't be?!
Public traffic following the first convoy .....
Here they come!
Metropolitan Police woman carrying a torch (on her back) - I nearly missed her!
As previous photo, cropped, for the flame. Better image to follow ......
Runner 013, Adam Tofield, from Tavistock.
Kept for the flame!
"London 2012 Torch Relay".
That's all, folks.

From the blog below, I would surmise that the runner was Adam Tofield.
