The Olympic torch relay is currently touring the United Kingdom for 70 days ahead of the London 2012 Olympic Games. Large crowds gather everyday to watch it pass their doorstep. Wherever it goes it appears to cause great excitement!
Since the 19th May, when the torch started its journey at Lands End in Cornwall, the Olympic torch has been touring the UK. In all, it will be carried by 8,000 torchbearers. Organisers say 95% of the country’s population should be able to be within one hour of the route, which ends on 27th July with the lighting of the cauldron during the opening ceremony in the Olympic Stadium in Stratford, London.
