Lord Mayor leads parade to mark Olympic Flame coming to Bradford
The Lord Mayor of Bradford, Councillor Dale Smith, proudly led more than a thousand children who attend schools across the district in a parade to celebrate the arrival of the Olympic Flame in the city.
Youngsters waving Union flags, home-made Olympic torches and banners of their individual schools were led on the parade in City Park by the Lord Mayor, Yorkshire band leaders and a colourfully-dressed MC.
An estimated 4,000 people have gathered to watch the parade snake around City Park ahead of the arrival of the Olympic Torch relay which is expected at about 3pm.
