A Paralympics 2012 ceremonial cauldron lit in London’s Trafalgar Square.

There was great excitement when the Prime Minister arrived as it meant the torch ceremony could begin.

David Cameron joined special guests including Boris Johnson, Mayor of London and spoke of how Britain and London knew how to put on a show.  The crowds lined the streets as the Paralympics 2012 flame went by.  It was carried by relay on the way to the Olympic Stadium for the opening ceremony on 29th August. They raced through the streets of London and the torch visited some of the capitals’ landmarks. Among them the Tower Bridge, London Eye and the Houses of Parliament.

This was where there were amazing scenes of excitement as the torch was taken inside Westminster for a special welcome and to be taken into the debating chamber for the Members of Parliament to have a closer look at the Olympic burning flame.  After that the torchbearers headed for other hotspots of the capital. They came across music hubs and heard the sounds of samba and salsa played.  Then danced in the streets with the locals.  video LOCOG
