The Baton was welcomed through the streets of Alnwick and Blyth as part of its journey going the length and breadth of England, culminating at the Opening Ceremony for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games on July 28.

Activities took place in both town centres to mark the celebrations.

Here are some pictures from the day, kindly provided by Northumberland County Council.
