Day 65 of the torch relay started on a high, literally, when Amelia Hempleman-Adams held the flame aloft while standing on the top of a London Eye pod.
The 17-year old got a close-up of Big Ben and said afterwards that "the height was quite scary but you know you're safe so it's not too bad".
Amelia enjoyed some spectacular views when aged 16 she became the youngest person to ski to the South Pole. She appreciated the very different but equally inspiring panorama offered by her ride on the Eye and said: "It was amazing to look out and see the whole of London."
Nicholas Moseley carried the Olympic flame on a sailing boat on Fairlop Lake. Nicholas is an aspiring Olympian having rowed for Marlow Rowing Club since the age of 13 and has competed at the highest level as a junior.
James Brewer, a 24-year-old from Twickenham, treated the spectators in Redbridge to a jump complete with heel click.
David Backhouse carried the Olympic flame past Valentine's Mansion in Ilford. He has been Governor at Mayfield School for 24 years and Chair of Governors since 1988. He has also been a volunteer for Barnardo's since retiring from full-time work.
Paul Freedman MBE carried the flame on the Barking Park Light Railway. Paul has been fundraising for a number of years for a number of different charities.
Luke Williams passed the Olympic flame to Elise Cobain outside Redbridge Town Hall in front of Redbridge Mayor Muhammed Javed (second right).
Scott Emmons carried the flame around Mayesbrook Park Training Centre, which is a dedicated training centre for London 2012 athletes.
Isaac Harvey, 16, carried the flame through Barking & Dagenham. He was born with limb/pelvic hypoplasia syndrome, which means he has no arms and a weak pelvis and does most things with his feet.
Britain's Got Talent winners Diversity ran as a group of torchbearers at Barking & Dagenham's Central Park. Ashley Banjo, the leader of the dance group, is pictured here carrying the flame before they all performed on stage as as part of the 60th Dagenham Town Show.
Promising sailor Aaron Reynolds, 18, carried the flame across the Thames in a London Fire Brigade boat, accompanied by a flotilla of small craft.
Former world heavyweight boxer Lennox Lewis was the last torchbearer of the day. Clearly delighted, he said: "I feel like I was carrying the Olympics in my hand and have now passed it on!"
