Picture Gallery and Video: Olympic torch in King’s Lynn
Thousands of people line the West Norfolk route to welcome torch to the first stop in Norfolk
Thousands of people lined the streets of King's Lynn to welcome the Olympic Torch as it arrived in Norfolk from Lincolnshire today.
Crowds lined the main London Road as the Torch came in through the Southgates before following a town centre course and heading to Lynnsport.
Flag-waving and cheering was the order of the day for excited children who were given flags to show their support.
It was a double celebration for a Downham Market couple who made the trip on July 4 - American Independence Day.
