A TORCH which has already been used in the Olympic relay has paid a special visit to a village school.

Pupils at Braunston Primary School got up close with the torch on Tuesday last week.

The torch was brought into the school by Graham Jephcote, whose daughter Megan, 13 and a rower, ran part of the official relay with it through Painswick, Gloucestershire, on May 23.

The torch is one of 8,000 being used during the relay, and torch bearers get the chance to buy the one they carry.

Graham works with Nick Hunter at CEVA in Daventry and Nick’s daughter attends Braunston Primary School.

Mr Hunter asked Mr Jephcote if he would bring the torch into the school to show his daughter and the other children.

The pupils got to carry the torch and also talk about the Olympics.

The Olympic flame will pass near Braunston on Monday on its way from Dunchurch to Northampton.
