The Olympic Torch: Lincolnshire to Nottinghamshire in pictures

It started this morning at Lincoln Castle, and headed to Nottinghamshire, on what could have possibly been The Olympic Torch's wettest day yet.

The Torch travelled through Saxilby and on into Nottinghamshire, with legs in Darlton, East Markham, Tuxford, Kirton, Boughton and Ollerton, and Edwinstowe.

It was then taken to Sherwood Forest, where Torchbearer Laura Graves carried the Flame in front of the 800 year old oak tree.

The Torch continued onto Mansfield Woodhouse and Mansfield, where heavy rain halted the Relay.

Fierce thunderstorms and heavy rain meant that the Flame had to be transferred back into a lantern, before it was relit, and the Relay continued.

From Mansfield, the Torch travelled to Kelham, and onto Newark, Balderton and Grantham, visiting Belton House.

The rain continued, but it didn't dampen the spirits of the onlookers.

Nottingham soldier, Corporal Daniel Whittingham, 26, carried the Torch in his home town of Nottingham.
