Former stuntman Eddie Kidd will be one of the athletes in our region baring the Olympic torch. The daredevil from Peacehaven walked the London Marathon last year. He'll be carrying the torch through Lewes on July 17.
Olympic torchbearers were at Harbour School in Dover this morning where the street by street route through the town, and through Deal and Sandwich, was announced.
Julia Chilcott and Mel Moore are two of the lucky hopefuls who've been chosen to carry the Olympic Torch through Maidstone.
Detective Sergeant Mel Moore is already a keen marathon runner, and says he will find it hard to run slowly through the town!
