Ammaara's BBC Introducing session in Hereford

This week's live session was recorded at Hereford's Paralympic celebrations - where the city had one huge party to launch the next stage of London 2012.

Herefordshire's flame was created by scouts on top of Scafell Pike - England's highest peak.

The fire was made in the traditional way of rubbing flint together before it was placed in a miner's lamp and transferred to London.

Hereford student Cameron Wood then collected the flame from the capital and brought it back to Hereford on horseback.

Providing the evening's entertainment was BBC Introducing in Hereford & Worcester - where we'd invited some of our rising stars to perform.

Ammaara are a Hereford duo made up of college friends Penny-Jo Wilson, aged 20, and Laura Tumelty, 22.

After deciding to throw some originals into their set, they set off for Rhodes where they performed at a high class piano bar for three months.

But the trip wasn't without it's adventures - as we explain in this video!

Laura has now graduated from Bristol UWE and is currently a primary school teacher and Penny-jo has just completed her second year at UWE studying Law.
