Nice try: Two kids try to take the Olympic torch

The kids broke through a cordon and briefly got their hands on the torch before they were shepherded away.

TWO KIDS MADE an unexpected bid to get their hands on the Olympic torch as it passed through a British city today.

The kids broke through a cordon as the torch was being paraded through Coventry in the midlands in England and made an audacious attempt to take the torch from the people who were carrying it.

Both of them managed to get their hands on it for a brief moment before a burly man shepherded both of the children away. Nice try, kids.
