There should be a 4th Torch Bearer, but name seems to have been left out !

There are three Torchbearers from Bodmin carrying the torch through Bugle !

There is one Torchbearer from Bodmin carrying the torch through Lanivet !

The explanation I have received from the official committee is -  "LOCOG has worked hard to ensure people are within an hour travelling of their nomination postcode so friends and family can easily support them and celebrate their role". ( How helpful ! - Please try harder I say ! )
