Thursday 5 July is Day 48 of the Olympic Torch relay and the flame goes from Norfolk into Suffolk. It journeys from Norwich to Ipswich calling in at several East Coast resorts.
After an early morning visit to Hethersett High School, the flame appears in the battlements of Norwich Castle as the five Olympic colours are trailed down the walls by abseilers. It then takes to a rowing boat across the city's River Wensum. The Torch then heads east through Acle and Filby before arriving in Great Yarmouth.
The first Suffolk stop is Lowestoft and a visit to the most easterly location in the British Isles, Ness Point.
There are also visits to Wrentham, Reydon, Southwold, Kelsale, Saxmundham, Aldeburgh, Wickham Market, Ufford, Melton, Woodbridge and Felixstowe.
In the shadow of the Orwell Bridge, the torch then takes to a speed boat to arrive at the Ipswich Waterfront before a procession around the town centre to Christchurch Park where the Evening Celebration is held.
