Kent torch bearer Graham Cooper 'carried a dark secret'

A retired butcher from Kent has been jailed for three years for sexually abusing a teenage girl in the 1980s.

Graham Cooper, 69, was selected to run a leg of the Olympic Torch Relay in 2012, but his victim was so angry about it that she contacted the police.

At Canterbury Crown Court Cooper was jailed for three years after the judge said he had "perverted and distorted views".
