Wednesday 24th July 2002
Homecoming of the Baton


Four months after leaving the UK on its journey around the Commonwealth, the Queen's Jubilee Baton Relay came home to Manchester.

Visitors to the site joined us for a live webcast as the baton was carried into Albert Square by Ryan Giggs and Stuart Pearce.
