A fanfare from a brass band and cheering crowds, including British sporting hopefuls, were part of the big welcome after it arrived on a flight to Jersey.

Diver Tom Daley said it was a "huge honour" to be the first person to carry the hand-crafted baton, containing a personal message from the Queen.
