THOUSANDS of people are lining the route waiting for the Olympic Torch to pass through Great Yarmouth.

On the historic Haven Bridge people are standing four or five deep and many waiting patiently near the route ends are from the local schools in Cobholm and Southtown.

A marching band is keeping the crowds entertained in the Market Place.
