本周末, 英國終於迎來了奧運的聖火。英國境內的火炬接力第一站將是位於Cornwall 郡的一個叫 Lands End 的地方。

It's almost here, the Olympic flame is on its way to the UK from Greece.

A special gold-colour plane named Firefly will be carrying the flame to an airbase in Cornwall to begin its journey around the British Isles.

Over the next 70 days, the Olympic torch will travel to more than one thousand towns and cities right across the UK.

Let us take you on a special journey of discovery of the UK as we follow the torch.
