- West Country (W)
The Olympic Torch left Taunton on the fourth day of its journey through the Westcountry. Pop star Will.i.am was the surprise guest carrier in Taunton last night. Crowds turned out early this morning to see the flame head off through South Somerset. Jonty Messer has this report.
As the Olympic torch made its way to Taunton, Will.i.am, was named as a last minute torchbearer as thousands looked on.
Torchbearers have been cashing in on their torches and selling them for thousands of pounds. Sophia Cowburn's bid has exceeded £60,000.
The Olympic torch relay continues on it's journey from Exeter to Taunton
