Olympic Victory Parade

Today I went up to London to see the Victory Parade for the athletes from the Olympics and Paralympics.   I stood near City Thameslink Station just down the road from St Pauls Cathedral and I had a great view and saw Mo Farah, Jess Ennis, Zara Phillips, Rebecca Adlington to name but a few.   Here are some of my photos and the rest are on flickr
