Olympic torch: One-legged boy cheered on relay run

Help

Thousands of people in Royal Wootton Bassett, Wiltshire, have cheered on a 16-year-old boy with one leg who hopes to compete in the Paralympics.

Ben Fox, a wheelchair basketball player, was applauded for his tenacity in covering the 300m.

Royal Wootton Bassett has become known for the quiet tributes that were frequently paid there as service personnel killed in Afghanistan were brought through the town from nearby RAF Lyneham.
