The Olympic Torch will continue its journey through the region this morning. Following last night's celebrations in Weymouth it'll leave Portland Bill just after 7am heading across Dorset, arriving in Bournemouth this evening.
Local children from the Brownies, Guides, Cubs, Scouts and Combined Cadet Forces will be among those lining the route to cheer on the first torchbearer of the day.
Crowds have gathered all across the South West today to see the torch make its way through our region.
