London 2012: Olympic torch guarded in the Tower

The Olympic Torch has arrived in London, where it will spend the night being guarded in the Tower of London along with the Olympic medals.

Royal Marine Martin Williams abseiled with the flame from a helicopter to deliver the flame, then Dame Kelly Holmes was the first person to carry the torch in London.

With the threat of strike action at Heathrow, and the army called in to patch up short-comings in security, David Bond looks at how ready London is to host the Olympics.
