Torchbearer Richard Dean was given a hero's welcome when he returned to his son's former school in Barnstaple. Mr Dean had been nominated to carry the flame for his charity work following the death of six year-old Kieran from a rare immunity disorder.
He raises money for Children's Hospice South West and provides support to other bereaved fathers.
