Commonwealth journey of Queen's baton

The Queen's Baton Relay is travelling to all the nations and territories ahead of the Commonwealth Games this summer.

For the first time ever the BBC are following the journey of the baton as it reaches out to the two billion people who live around the Commonwealth.

In the first few months the baton has travelled across Asia, Oceania and Africa, and is now in the Caribbean.

It will arrive in Jersey on 11 May to begin a two month journey around the UK culminating on the opening night of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow on 23 July.
