Tharston teenager is set to carry the Olympic Torch through Norwich

Tharston teenager Josh Worley is filled with excitement ahead of his moment to shine tomorrow.

The 16-year-old will carry the torch along Norwich's Aylsham Road at about 6.21pm.

He was nominated after setting up community radio station SNYA to give young people the opportunity to get involved in real broadcasting media and a head start in carrying on life after school.

The former Hethersett High School pupil, who has just finished his GCSEs, said: 'I'm so excited now. When my outfit came through the post, it was the best package I've ever received through the door.

'There's a mix of emotions – I'm quite nervous in a way, it's a big thing, there are a lot of people watching, but I'm also so proud to be part of something the whole country is getting involved in. I'm so proud to have been chosen.'
