THE LONG wait was finally over on Friday as Buxton welcomed the Olympic Torch.
The flame arrived in the spa town during the Derbyshire leg of its nationwide tour, which earlier in the day had seen it call at Chesterfield, Matlock, Bakewell and Chatsworth.
And the Buxton Advertiser’s video team were out and about - amongst the crowds and onboard the official Olympic convoy - to record the big day.
