A FORMER student went back to classes to talk to pupils and inspire them to achieve their dreams.

Tom Easterby carried the Olympic Torch on part of its 8,000 mile tour from Cornwall across Britain in May.

Tom, aged 15, told dozens of pupils at Castle Batch Primary School in Worle about his experience during their week of Olympic-themed events and studies.

The Priory Community School pupil was joined by 64 year-old David Humphreys, a fellow torch bearer who ran with the torch through Wells.

David has had both hips replaced and suffers with Parkinson’s disease.
