Leicester shows off Paralympic flame

The Paralympic flame has arrived in Leicester to be part of a special celebration of the Games in the East Midlands.

It travelled by train from the cauldron ceremony in London with deputy city mayor Rory Palmer and Paige Murray, a local disability sports champion.

Claire Lomas, from Melton Mowbray, paralysed in a horse riding accident, lit the cauldron at Trafalgar Square to launch the Paralympic torch relay.
