Scotland has welcomed the Olympic flame for the first time as the torch relay travelled from Stranraer to Glasgow.

Hollywood actor James McAvoy ran a leg in his native Glasgow, saying he said he was ''proud'' and ''quite emotional'' to be carrying the torch through his home town.

He added that the Games were for everybody, not just Londoners.
