Olympic torchbearer sells socks on eBay

An Olympic torchbearer has sold her socks on eBay to shame those who flogged their torches.15 year old Evie Fairman carried the flame through Bodmin in Cornwall last week.

The teenager, born with half a heart, says she'd never sell her torch and instead auctioned the socks she wore during the run.

They attracted 14 bids and eventually sold for £38, which will be donated to Evie's chosen charity, Little Hearts Matter.
