VIDEO: Tour of Britain

Hundreds of people lined the streets of Ilkeston this morning to see cycling superstars Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish ride through the town as they took part in the Tour of Britain.

School children and members of the public waved Union Jack flags and cheered as the cyclists rode up Nottingham Road, through West Hallam and on to Stanley.
