It's day four of the Olympic torch relay and Amy Clutterbuck has carried the flame through Ilminster. Some 147 people will carry the torch along this leg which will visit places such as Taunton, Ilminster, Glastonbury, Wells, Bradford on Avon, Bath and Bristol.
The day started with Judith Gaden carrying the Olympic flame on a canal boat on her leg along the River Tone through Taunton. The 56-year-old lost her son, Cpl Tom Gaden, 1st Battalion the Rifles in Afghanistan in 2009 and has since raised money for Help for Heroes via a number of community events.
Sophie Vaughan-Williams carried the Olympic flame on the leg through Ilminster. The 16-year-old Bristol student is predicted to gain 11 A* grades in her GCSEs and is currently working on her Silver Duke of Edinburgh award.
Also carrying the flame through Ilminster was Tonia White. Nominated for her community and environmental events, Mrs White, from Taunton, lost her parents in the M5 crash which claimed seven lives last year.
Torchbearer 014, 2010 Winter Olympics gold medallist Amy Williams, carried the Olympic flame on the leg between Yeovil and Somerton. She announced her retirement from the sport, two years after her victory in Vancouver, earlier this month after struggling with injury and form.
After her leg, the 29-year-old tweeted "Amazing feeling, very proud to be British and to have had the opportunity to carry the #OlympicTorch. Thank you." She's presenting the BBC West special programme from Bristol with John Inverdale this evening.
Crowds waving bright flags lined the streets as Jacob Brownhill carried the Olympic flame on the leg between Street and Coxley. The 14-year-old said he had inherited his love of sport from his father who has been working on the London Games since 2007. Jacob hoped his older brother, who has Down's Syndrome, would "feel as proud of me as I do of him".
Anthony Deahl, pictured in front of Wells Cathedral, carried the Olympic Flame on the leg between Wells and Shepton Mallet.
