Olympic torch relay: Flame abseils down Grimsby Dock Tower

A torchbearer has abseiled with the flame down the iconic Dock Tower in Grimsby to start day 40 of the Olympic torch relay.

Alan Ellinson, 55, of Stockport, who has raised more than £12m for charity through abseiling and zip wire events, kicked off the day's proceedings.

With exactly one month to go to the Games, the relay is travelling from Grimsby to Lincoln.
