Two-year-old Beatrix Palmer got to hold the Paralympic torch when she went to see it with her mother Leah.


Shoppers got a first glimpse of the flame when it passed through Hampton Hill on Friday, August 17.


David and Judith Laiton were also among the fans who got the unique opportunity to get their picture taken with the torch in Sainsbury’s, in High Street.


The flame will embark on its official relay from Stoke Mandeville, in Aylesbury - the home of the Paralympic movement - to the Olympic park, in Stratford, from Tuesday, August 28, to Wednesday, August 29.
