Cycle tour zips through

SCORES of people lined the streets of Nettlebed when the sixth stage of the Tour of Britain passed through the village on Friday.

More than 100 cyclists entered from the west, then turned north up the B481 towards Watlington.

They were competing in the Bath to Hemel Hempstead leg of the race, which finished in London on Sunday.

A crowd of residents and members of several local cycling clubs gathered at the junction and cheered loudly as the riders passed.

Some stood taking photos and videos on their mobile phones while others lounged in deckchairs on the grass verge.
