FUNDRAISER Caitlin Jones was the centre of attention at school yesterday as she showed off her Olympic torch.

The teenager was a torchbearer when the route went through Liverpool earlier this month.

She took the torch in to show to classmates and teachers at St Wilfrid's Church of England Academy in Blackburn.

Caitlin, who suffers from learning and physical difficulties, was nominated by councillors, members of public and Darwen MP Jake Berry, for her work raising over £10,000 for cancer charities since the death of her father three years ago.
