A balloon ride in the biomes and a convoy 150 metres long.

More details are being revealed about the Olympic Torch relay in Cornwall, including a stop at the Eden Project.

More than 170 people will follow the flame in May.

Malcolm Bell from Visit Cornwall said, "We're going to have a whole day and one billion audience and certainly tens and hundreds of millions even across Europe. You cannot buy that coverage.
