There was also an incident where a man was tackled to the ground because the security staff thought the man was going for the torch... not sure who was getting more carried away, the man enthusiastically trying to run up behind the bearer or the security staff! Check the video out:
The Metropolitan Police, whose officers are guarding the torch on the relay and are wearing grey running gear, said no-one was allowed "within the security envelope".
