The Olympic torch has arrived in London after a 63-day trip around the British Isles - in a scene akin to a James Bond film. The flame was delivered to the Tower of London by a Royal Marine Commando who abseiled from a helicopter carrying it in a lantern. Marine Martyn Williams arrived at Tower Wharf in a Royal Navy Sea King helicopter, and undertook the 180ft descent from the aircraft at 20:12 hours - to mark the year of the Games. He held the flame up proudly for media representatives gathered to witness its arrival in the host city, with seven days to go until the start of the Games.
