I was so disappointed torch was on a coach

First published in Letters

SIR – There was disappointment all around at the Olympic Torch procession in Worcester.

Crowds gathered on the A38, where it was advertised that the torch would be travelling at walking pace – it was on a coach.

The special programme on BBC1 was finished before the flame arrived so the choir singing was a non-event.

If this had been a football match the programme would have run on until the game was over.

Well, for me and many others, the game was not over until the torch arrived.

I hope that you get more letters from people who feel exactly as I do.

SYLVIA HILLIER Worcester
