Olympic torch: Teenage sailor on finding her talent

Stacey Herring has Aspergers and had been falling into trouble at home and at school.

The 17-year-old's outlook changed unexpectedly when she visited Christchurch Sailing Club and discovered a talent on the water.

Now a club member, with her own pink boat, her life has changed completely and she's a regular sight around Christchurch harbour.

She carried the torch through Puddletown, Dorset on Thursday.
