Today is the day that the Olympic Torch Relay starts and marks 70 days until the start of the Olympics. Starting at 7am at Lands end in Cornwall and spending the first day winding through Cornwall the procession will eventually leave Cornwall tonight and finish it's first day in Plymouth Devon and then continue around the UK covering 8000 miles and involving 8000 lucky torch bearers.

Unfortunately i was not up early enough to make it to Lands end for the start of the relay however a good friend from Property Turkey was there to capture the atmosphere and has allowed me to share her photos on here for you to see. Currently the torch is in Truro city center and will be winding it's way over to the North coast and Newquay in time for lunch. To watch the Olympic torch relay live and track it's current location you can keep up to date via the BBC website.
