What keeps the Olympic torch relay on the road?

21 May 2012 Last updated at 23:30 BST

It is day three for the Olympic Torch Relay and it has been making its way through Devon and into Somerset.

There was a slight hitch when the flame went out briefly but it did not stop thousands from cheering the torch bearers.

It takes more than 350 people to keep the torch convoy.

Robert Hall reports.
