England's Big Picture: 8 - 14 August

Each day we feature a photograph sent in from across England - the gallery will grow during the week.

To mark the start of the Olympic Games in Rio, this week's theme for #EnglandsBigPicture will be the Olympic story.

If you have an Olympic-inspired picture you would like to share, please see below the images for details on how to submit yours.
