Paralympic flame in Ely flotilla in Cambridgeshire

The Paralympic Flame will take to the water among a flotilla of boats in Ely this weekend as it continues its journey around Cambridgeshire.

It will be part of a day of activities for people with disabilities and their families in Milton, near Cambridge, on Saturday.

Ely is due to be the next stop, with the flame taken down the Great Ouse.

On Sunday it calls in at Wisbech and Peterborough, and leaves from Grafham Water near Huntingdon on Monday.

Evening celebrations on Saturday and Sunday both take place at museums - in Ely and in Peterborough - with visitors able to take a close look at the Paralympic Flame.

A convoy of members of the Peterborough Adapted Cycling Scheme, using their hand cycles or in wheelchairs, will escort the flame to the Embankment Sports and Athletics Track in Peterborough on Monday morning.

The track is hosting the Peterborough Diamond Games for both able bodied and disabled participants in a range of athletic events all day.

The flame will leave the county after visiting Grafham Water on Monday afternoon.
