A woman paralysed from the chest down who completed the London marathon using a set of robotic legs will be one of those carrying the paralympic flame.

Claire Lomas from Eye Kettleby near Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire completed the 26 mile route in 17 days back in May.

During the torch relay 116 teams of five Torchbearers will carry the Flame from Stoke Mandeville to London.
