Olympic torch: Wheelchair man walks with torch


A man with Parkinson's Disease was helped from his wheelchair to carry the Olympic flame on day three of the torch relay.

Andy Seward, 67, from Ashburton, bore the flame through Braunton in Devon.

Mr Seward was nominated for his involvement in sport which included coaching football in Devon, setting up The Sports Institute in Papua New Guinea and organising The South Pacific Games in 1991.
