Organisers are still hopeful that the flame being carried in the Paralympic Torch Relay would arrive at the Olympic Stadium at the scheduled time of 10pm.
– Locog spokesperson
We are still hoping to get there. We have been cutting out breaks and things like that on the way so we are making up time.
The Paralympic Flame is still in a very active race against time to reach the Olympic Stadium for tonight's opening ceremony.
Organisers have been forced to light a backup torch after the final day relay ran two hours behind schedule - before it even reached the capital this morning.
Hundreds of torchbearers received huge support as they passed a series of famous London landmarks on the way to the Olympic Park in Stratford.
ITV News' Emily Morgan accompanied them on the flame's eventful final journey:
The Paralympic torch relay is running just over an hour late, but organisers remain hopeful it will make it to the Olympic Stadium in time for tonight's Opening Ceremony.
A Locog spokeswoman said time had been made up on the relay, having fallen at least two hours behind schedule before it even began the final London legs.
After racing around a series of the capital's landmarks, the torch was taken on a voyage from Lewisham to Greenwich aboard a boat on the Thames.
A break-away Paralympic flame has been lit to ensure tonight's Opening Ceremony can start on time after the torch relay fell two hours behind.
Slow progress overnight saw a "contingency" second flame ignited at City Hall and taken to the Olympic Stadium in case the time cannot be made up.
Organisers, though, hope the relay will still make the stadium on time.
The Paralympic Flame stopped by the penguin enclosure at London Zoo, as it made its way through the City of Westminster.
The Paralympic Flame relay is currently running two hours behind schedule, with organisers hoping to claw back the delay as the torch makes its way to Stratford for tonight's Opening Ceremony.
Last night four individual flames representing the four home nations were carried into the stadium at Stoke Mandeville in Buckinghamshire - the spiritual home of the Paralympic Games - and one combined torch was carried out, a beacon of the Paralympic spirit.
