Thomas Mules held the Olympic flame aloft on Pulpit Rock, Portland Bill on the Isle of Portland, at the beginning of day 56 of the torch relay. He was chosen for his work as a young ambassador and with children with disabilities.
After completing his leg Thomas handed the flame to David Darby in front of Portland Bill Lighthouse.
Sparse crowds braved the blustery weather to watch Portland's Dave "Darbs" Darby carry the torch. He was nominated for the honour by the Portland Athletics Club and Friends of Victoria Gardens.
Vickie Mattock carried the Olympic flame on a hill overlooking Portland.
Maria Lochrie carried the flame as the convoy entered Weymouth harbour. The 19-year-old takes children with disabilities sailing and also works as a lifeguard.
Durdle Door provided the beautiful backdrop for this picture of torchbearer Lisa Devine. The natural limestone arch is on the Jurassic Coast near Lulworth in Dorset.
The ruins of Corfe Castle were visible behind torchbearer Valerie Mylechreest, who carried the flame on the main route through the Purbeck Hills.
Wendy Morrell was accompanied by her assistance dog, Udo, when she carried the flame in Upton. Wendy overcame disability to become a maths teacher, lecturer, pilot and a national standard archer.
Friday's crowds were so big that spectators used any vantage point they could to get a view of the Olympic flame, with some climbing a ship's rigging between Hamworthy and Poole to get a better view.
The day's last torchbearer, Charles Rogers, lit the cauldron at a packed evening ceremony on Bournemouth beach. Ahead of the ceremony, Olympic swimmer Sharon Davies, who carried the torch on a leg in Hertfordshire, said: “The relay has galvanised the whole country. Everyone feels they’ve had a hand in getting it to London.”
