Torch greeted by animals at Knowsley Safari Park

Olympic fever continues to grip our region. On the latest leg of the relay, the Olympic Torch left Bolton early this morning and headed for the seaside. Then it took in Knowsley safari park before being taken on a ferry across the Mersey.

And within the next hour it's due at Liverpool's Pier Head where a crowd of around 10,000 people are waiting!
