THE people of Dunsville lined the streets with picnic hampers and deck chairs for hours to get a glimpse of the torch.

Torch fans had walked for miles to get the best view of the flame as it passed through the village, with Doncaster’s own Catherine Ogley doing the honours through the heart of the community.

Hundreds lined the High Street and Doncaster Road, waving union flags, inflatable torches and home made banners.

The occasion had a distinctly family affair with several generations getting together to watch the relay as it moved on to Hatfield and out of the borough.
