Stevenage Olympic Torch on auction site

A 2012 Olympic Torch, its stand and the official running uniform from the Stevenage relay is up for sale on an auction site weeks ahead of the event.

The items on eBay initially had a starting price of �50,000 but that’s since changed to �500 after the owner failed to receive any bids. The current highest bidder is offering �510. The listing says a percentage of the winning bid will go to a cancer charity. The torches can be bought by the 8,000 runners for �215. The auction will end on Saturday.
