Wootton Bassett Biker's Ride

Today, 15,000 bikers rode through Wootton Bassett to comemorate the people who have lost sons, fathers and brothers to the Iraq war. I just went up there with Dad and the atmosphere was amazing. Just friendly and grateful. A lot of the bikes had "Thank you, Wootton Bassett" on them. It was more meaningful than a bunch of faux-melancholy news reporters bleating about us on BBC News, I can tell you.

One biker even gave a little boy her flag. It was heartwarming.
