On Tuesday and Wednesday people from across the UK will light the way to the Paralympic Games by carrying the flame from Stoke Mandeville to the Olympic Park.

The 24-hour relay will see the Paralympic Flame carried 87 miles by 580 Torchbearers working in teams of five.

Inspirational people, including some nominated by Prince Harry and Lord Coe, will help carry the torch through the night and day towards the Olympic Stadium in east London.

Our Paralympics Correspondent Rags Martel reports:

The Torch will leave Aylesbury on Tuesday evening before being carried through Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire. On Wednesday it will visit all six host boroughs and a number of iconic London landmarks. From the Abbey Road crossing in the north-west of the city to historic Greenwich in the south-east, the Torch will travel right through the heart of London. It will pass through Piccadilly Circus, Westminster Abbey, Downing Street and Trafalgar Square.
