Olympic torch relay rehearsal for London 2012 Games


The Olympic torch has made its way from Leicester to Peterborough as part of a test day for the full UK Olympic torch relay, which starts in May.

Games organisers Locog chose the section for the rehearsal because it took in rural and urban locations and allowed them to test the technicalities of the torch travelling on trains and boats and going through a city and pedestrian areas.

BBC Look East's Shaun Peel retraces the torch's journey minutes before it reached its final destination in the Cambridgeshire city.
