Paralympic flame arrives at UK's first traditional Hindu temple

Thousands of people have turned out to welcome the Paralympic flame which is en route to the Olympic Stadium for the opening ceremony of the Games.

Crowds have lined the route of the 24-hour torch relay which began in Stoke Mandeville on Tuesday night.

The flame arrived in north London almost two hours late but organisers said they were now making up the time.

The BBC's John Maguire was at a Hindu temple in North West London to see the flame arrive.
