The Olympics get under way in Cornwall

Large crowds lined the streets of Falmouth today to witness the historic passage of the Olympic Flame through the town.

The Flame arrived in Cornwall from Athens yesterday evening, and the torch relay commenced at Land's End this morning, the start of its epic 12,875 km (8000 miles), 70 day journey around Britain. The torch will eventually arrive at Olympic Park on July 27th, when it will light the cauldron at the opening ceremony.

On the first day of Biohydromet '12 (June 18th) the torch will be in the far north-east of England, travelling between Middlesbrough and Hull.
