- West Country (W)
After a day spent making its way through Dorset, the Olympic torch has finally arrived in Weymouth. Thousands of people were waiting to greet it as it sailed over from Portland. The rain hasn't dampened spirits and an evening of celebrations is under way.
Crowds have gathered all across the South West today to see the torch make its way through our region.
