London 2012: Four Paralympic flames kindled around the UK

Help

Four Paralympic flames have been kindled at the top of the highest peaks of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland ahead of next week's Games.

They were created on Northern Ireland's Slieve Donard, Snowdon in Wales, Scotland's Ben Nevis and on Scafell Pike in England's Lake District.

Four teams scaled the highest peaks of the home countries to spark the flames which will come together at Stoke Mandeville on Tuesday.
