In preparation of his visit the children had made their own torches which they waved when Mr Newton, from Asfordby, walked into the school hall.

Mr Newton, a St John Ambulance stalwart and marathon runner, answered many questions about his day carrying the torch.

Headteacher Steve Cliff said: “He allowed every child and member of staff to hold his torch. It was a very memorable day.”
