Barry West- DisAbled Challenger And Torchbearer

A man from East Sussex who was paralysed from the neck down in a car accident is celebrating after being chosen as an Olympic torch bearer.

Barry West, from Framfield, will carry the Olympic flame through Rye.

He has undertaken a series of challenges since his accident, including paragliding and mountaineering, but said the torch relay will be one of his proudest moments.
