On day 66 of its journey, Sir Patrick Stewart carried the Olympic torch through parts of Croydon, South London.

The famous Shakespearean actor is perhaps better known as Captain Jean-Luc Picard, in the TV series Star Trek: The Next Generation and several Star Trek feature films.

Mr Stewart said 'nothing compared' to the experience of carrying the torch ahead of the Olympic games.
