Olimpic Flame Goes Out

On its way to the Olympic stadium in London the famous flame which commemorates the theft of fire form the Greek god Zeus by Prometheus was blown in Great Torrington. Whilst being carried by a wheelchair user named David Follett the flame was hit by a large wind blowing out the touch and holding up the entourage few tense moments. This is the first time that the flame has gone out since its arrival in the UK. By the time the flame reaches the Olympic stadium it will have traveled 8000 miles.
