Artist Tracey Emin has carried the Olympic torch through her home town of Margate on it's journey through Kent today.
She held the flame aloft on the steps of the Turner Contemporary art gallery.
A 17-year-old man has been arrested for trying to grab the Olympic flame as it passed through Gravesend.
The Olympic torch received a rapturous response in Maidstone this morning as it was taken by rowing boat along the River Medway.
