Aptitude Questions : Crossing Bridge Interview Puzzle

The scenario comprises of a wobbly bridge and four people. It is the night time and the people have only one torch. Without torch one may risk his life in crossing the bridge. Also we have a condition; the bridge is not quite strong and can hold only two persons together at one. The four people take different time to cross the bridge - 1 min, 2 min, 7 min and 10 min.

Since the torch is a necessity and the bride can't hold more than two persons at a time, two persons must travel at a time out of which one must return with the torch so they don't risk their life crossing in the dark.

What is the shortest time that will be required for all of them to cross the bridge?
