A vet from Cumbria has been chosen to carry the Olympic torch when it arrives in Workington.

Andrew Robson also set up a food bank in Cockermouth that has helped many people after the Cockermouth floods in 2009 and families that are feeling a financial strain.

He will carry the torch for 300m in Workington and plans on savouring every moment.
