Tea rooms opened in Wembley for the first time in more than 100 years

Olympic torchbearer joined the celebrations

Wembley residents have new tea rooms for the first time in more than 100 years.

The Sudbury Tea Rooms opened in Harrow Road, and residents got to hold the Olympic Torch when Ainsley Bell, a torchbearer in Greenwich, joined the celebrations.

Sudbury Town Residents Association members, who joined calls for the tea rooms, were at the opening too.

There were tea gardens more than 100 years ago at what is now the Swan Inn pub.
