London 2012: Olympic torch to visit UK landmarks

The Olympic torch is to visit landmarks such as Stonehenge and the Giant's Causeway as it makes its way around the UK ahead of the London 2012 games, it has been announced.

On the last day of the 70-day relay it will travel down the River Thames to Olympic Park for the opening ceremony.

During the 10-week relay, the torch will be carried by 8,000 torchbearers and will travel about 8,000 miles.
