8,000 people were chosen to carry the Olympic torch in its journey from Land's End to the Olympic site. The torchbearers were given the option to keep the torch if they paid £215 for it. Now some, have started auctioning off their torches and cashing in thousands of pounds from it.
19-year-old Sophia Cowburn is one the torchbearers who put up her torch for auction. She was nominated because of the work she did in setting up a charity called Invictus Trust, which support teenagers with mental health issues in Cornwall.
