London 2012: 'My dad ran with the 1948 Olympic torch'

The torch relay ahead of London's 1948 Olympics ran across Europe from Greece to the UK. From Dover to the opening ceremony at Wembley it was carried by local athletes.

Linda Kearnes, from Farnham in Surrey, whose father Albert Sibley ran with the torch, says it was a privilege for the keen runner to carry the flame.
