It's a British year - a year of celebrations starting with the Queen's Jubilee and continuing with the Olympics. Our cities, towns and villages are flying high with red white and blue bunting as the Olympic torch travels from one town to another.
Yesterday the Olympic torch arrived in the historical city of Portsmouth, known as England's only Island City. Home to the world's oldest dry dock still in use, and home to the ships HMS Warrior and Lord Nelson's flagship HMS Victory.

The torch arrives...
Have a great week everyone!
