Derby and Derbyshire welcomed the Olympic Torch Relay in style on Friday, with more than 250,000 people lining the streets to catch a glimpse of history.
Local people who had been selected to be Torchbearers - many in recognition of their dedication to sport - carried the flame through Glapwell, Bolsover, Calow, Chesterfield, Matlock, Darley Dale, Chatsworth, Bakewell, Buxton and Ashbourne.
The Torch Relay also stopped for lunch at Highfields School in Matlock and travelled by cable car at the Heights of Abraham before ending the day in Derby for the Olympic Torch Relay evening celebration where the final Torchbearer of the day, two times World Superbike Champion James Toseland, lit the Celebration Cauldron.
Derby Paralympian Leon Taylor was the first Torchbearer of the day on June 30, as the torch left Derby's Market Place at 6.41am and passed the Royal Derby Hospital at 7.21am before continuing its journey in Convoy mode to its next stop in Burton upon Trent.
Derbyshire Sport has now put together a short film clip which shows just a glimpse of the action from around the county. See the clip below
