Thousands of people are now arriving at the Olympic Park ahead of the 27 million opening ceremony of the London Games.
The three-hour spectacle in the Olympic Stadium will be viewed by a global TV audience of around one billion people.
The Olympic flame is at City Hall ahead of its ceremony appearance, on the last leg of its 70-day nationwide journey.

Details of the ceremony remain a closely-guarded secret. Its artistic director, Danny Boyle, has dedicated it to the 15,000 volunteers taking part.
The chairman of London 2012, Lord Coe, said he is excited as hell about the ceremony.
Crowds of people, many of them dressed up in their nation's colours, are gathering in large numbers at the Olympic Park. There have been no reports of any major transport problems.
