Its day 47 of the Olympic Torch Relay, and today the torch travels from Peterborough to Norwich.

The flame will begin its 127 mile trek from Peterborough Guildhall this morning.

Market Deeping, Thurlby, Bourne and Spalding will get a final glimpse as the torch leaves the Midlands for the last time before the London 2012 opening ceremony.

It will continue into East Anglia, where the Sandringham Estate will provide a royal backdrop for the Olympic Torch in the afternoon.

The Torch is expected to reach Norwich in the evening, where a magical mechanical boat, dancers and a digital screen show will welcome the Torch.

There are now just 23 days until the London 2012 opening ceremony.
