Afghan veteran Ricky Furgusson carries 2012 torch


Injured Afghanistan war veteran Ricky Furgusson has carried the Olympic flame through Broseley on day 12 of the torch relay from Chester to Stoke-on-Trent.

The Telford-born 26-year-old lost both his legs, left eye and fingers from both hands when he was injured on active service.

He received huge support from the crowd, which included members of the 4th battalion, the Rifles.

Speaking to the BBC's Robert Hall, Mr Furgusson explained that he was determined not to let his injuries stop him from living life to the full.
