OLYMPIC diver Tom Daley carried the Queen's Baton as it arrived in the UK on the final leg of its journey to Glasgow for the start of the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

The symbol of the Games, which has completed a 288-day international journey, touched down at Jersey airport yesterday and was carried by the bronze medallist to St Aubin harbour.

Unlike the Olympic torch relays where the flame is passed through hundreds of torches, there is just one baton for the Commonwealth Games. Its journey began at Buckingham Palace in October.

Daley said: "Glasgow 2014 is a huge focus for me - and support of the crowds and the commitment of the athletes I had the opportunity to meet makes the Games feel very real."

More than 100,000 extra tickets for the Games go on sale from 10am today. The ticket hotline is 0844 826 2014.
