Jet Pack Man takes Olympic torch

Help

The torch began day 46 of its 70-day journey by being carried into the air by Jet Pack Man - stuntman Nick Macomber - at Leicester's National Space Centre.

Mr Macomber flew briefly with the torch before handing it over to the day's first torchbearer, Kevin Davies.

Afterwards, he spoke to East Midlands Today's Victoria Hicks.
