It's week six of the Olympic torch relay. The Olympic flame has been making its way around the UK and this week it's been the turn of the north west of England to see it.

It will travel through the English counties of Cumbria and Lancashire, home to six football league clubs, and by Saturday it will have reached the famous English city of Manchester – home to two world-class football teams.

In Cumbria, there is also the famous Lake District, a popular hiking holiday destination with mountains surrounded by numerous lakes. The Olympic torch will be carried on a steam boat crossing a lake called Windermere.
