The Olympic torch will be carried round the UK by 8,000 people over 8,000 miles for 70 days, a relay ending at the Olympic Stadium in Stratford for the Games opening ceremony on 27 July.
The Olympic flame was lit at the Temple of Hera in Olympia on 10 May and travelled round other parts of Greece before being handed to the London organisers in Athens. The following day was flown to Land’s End in Cornwall, where the torch relay starts.
