- West Country (W)
The Olympic Torch has left Taunton on the fourth day of its journey through the west country. Crowds turned out bright and early to see the flame head off through South Somerset carried by Judy Gaden whose son Tom was killed in Afghanistan.
It started with a trip by electric powered boat before continuing by road to Ilminster and onto Yeovil, Glastonbury and Wells before heading to Trowbridge, Bath and Bristol.
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.
