David expresses delight that Olympic torch will pass through Brough


David said that it was a “great honour” that the Olympic torch was to pass through the local village of Brough, as part of its 70-day tour round the nation.

The torch will pass through on June 19, and will be taken by 15-year-old Brough resident Jack Franklin on part of the route to Hull. David said that Jack- who suffers from a degenerative muscular disorder, and has been named fundraiser of the year by the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign- “is a remarkable young man and a shining example to us all”.
