ISLE of Wight MP Andrew Turner has received an assurance from London 2012 Olympic organisers the Olympic torch will be brought to the Island after all.

Olympic organisers had announced its initial list of places the torch relay would be passing through this morning (Wednesday). It had included several UK islands as well as Portsmouth and Southampton — but not the Isle of Wight.
