Last night, a team of Torchbearers carried the Paralympic Flame onto the stage at the Aylesbury Flame Celebration in the Market Square to mark their contribution to the development of Paralympic sport.
A spectacular firework display kicked off celebrations as the Flame started on it's 24 hour journey to the Olympic Park for tonight's Opening Ceremony - marking the start of the Paralympic Games.
Through the night the Paralympic Torch has been carried in a relay, which started in Buckinghamshire yesterday.
Paralympic cyclists are hoping to emulate the success of their Olympic counterparts as they compete at Brands Hatch.
Athletes from across the South are making their final preparations ahead of the Paralympics.
