The Queen’s Baton has begun its journey through Falkirk district ... and we’ll be folliowing its progress every step of the way.

The relay arrived in Denny just after 8 a.m. where it was greeted by cheering crowds and will now head eastward towards the Helix Park and an evening of massive celebrations organised by Falkirk Council and Falkirk Community Trust.

As well as having photographers following the entire route, we’ve got reporters at key points along the way to give you a flavour of the atmosphere.

There will be regular updates on our website and you can track the baton’s progress on Twitter following #Falkirkbaton.

We’re also keen to feature as many pictures and videos from readers as possible.
