Thousands lined the streets as the Olympic Torch Relay arrived in Kent on Tuesday for the first time.

Tunbridge Wells played host to the iconic flame as it makes its way around the county in a 70-day, 8,000 mile trek towards the Olympic Stadium in London and the official opening of the Olympic Games on July 27.

Our photographer Paul Jerreat was on the Pantiles to capture the historic moment. To view a selection of images click on the gallery link to the right of this story.
