24 Hour Protection For 2012 Torch

The Olympic torch is going to have 24 hour security from the moment it arrives in Britain.

The "mother flame" as it's being called will arrive 70 days before the opening ceremony next year.

Scotland Yard have told us they're putting on extra self-defence training for 49 officers who've been chosen to protect it, and the 8 thousand torchbearers during the 8 thousand mile relay across the UK.

Intelligence teams are trying to identify any groups who may wish to disrupt the relay.
