Excellent set of images. Not many will have a full set like you. A great record of a historic journey, excellent work. It was a did tight in places.

Just seen it being put in place on the news, and the man himself saying a few words!
Great photo journalism.

A really good record of a big event for the WSR. Very interesting selection of photos, especially the tight squeeze at Washford.
