Andy carries Olympic Torch through Poole

Friday 13th might be unlucky for some but for College student Andy McKenna this month's date is set to be a day to remember.

Last year, Andy was unknowingly nominated by a friend to carry the Olympic flame as part of the national build-up to the summer of sport. When he found out his name had been put forward, little did he expect to be a success with the judges and now find himself preparing to carry the flame in Poole.
