The torch began its final journey of 70th day in London at 6.55am at Bushey Park and was carried through Hampton Court Palace. It was then carried on to the royal barge Gloriana by Olympic gold-medal winning rower Matthew Pinsent. A mini flotilla of 50 boats is accompanying the flame as it makes the final way of its heroic 8,000 mile journey downstream to Tower Bridge. It will be carried into the Stratford stadium in east London this evening and lit by a mystery VIP. Thousands of people lined the river bank to watch the historic moment and catch a glimpse of the famous flame which has travelled across the UK.
