There are calls for Olympic bosses to apologise, after a Torchbearer had their Cornish flag removed.

It happened just before Andrew Ball crossed the Tamar Bridge.

MPs have written to Lord Coe.

LOCOG have released this statement:

"Agreeing to carry the Olympic Flame in the officials uniform was part of the participation terms each Torchbearer signed up to. We would ask that people respect that for the 300m they carry the flame".
