    So you must be one of the 5% of people that it isn't coming within 10 miles of - unlike Cazza who sounds like she just needs to poke her head out of her window at the right moment

    Oh, and Alis who would end up with very wet feet

    One thing I really want to know is what they do with the torch(es) overnight - do they have some sort of "torch-mobile" they can put it in til the next day?

    There are some stages where the torch doesn't start from the place it finished the day before too, so I guess they need some way to cart it about in the mean time.

    Enquiring minds want to know.....

    I have no idea! Maybe they will put it in that lantern thing...

    Just checked the route and it's very close to where I live on 25th July. Just need to figure out the best place to go. Any idea which famous people will be carrying the torch on which leg?

    Hope they've got good insurance

    They have a team of torch security. On the One Show today they said the security guys do not leave it alone at night and sleep by the torch. I think there is some sort of convoy for parts of the route between people carrying it.

    Nice! As long as none of them are tempted to put the light out cos they can't sleep
