Turkish Cypriot Tracey Emin Carries the Olympic Torch to Margate

Tracey Emin carried the flaming Olympic 2012 torch into the Turner Contemporary Centre in Margate, Kent. She then handed over the job to Karen Pickering, member of the British Swimming Squad (1986-2005), who set off for the next leg of the torches’ journey around the UK.

Tracey Emin was born in Croydon but her Turkish Cypriot father brought her to Margate to start a hotel business there.
