Olympic Torch Back In The North East

20 June 2012, 10:18

The Olympic Torch will once again be passing through the North East on it's way from York to Carlisle later.

The relay will pass through North Yorkshire and County Durham today (Wednesday 20th June) on Day 33 of its travels around the UK.

It's already set off from York Minister this morning and travelled by train to Thirsk.

Thousands of people are expected to line the route, with sunshine and warm temperatures boosting numbers.

In Barnard Castle, the route (which you can see below) will be closed to traffic from about 2.45pm and will remain closed until after the convoy has left, at about 3.45pm.

There will be temporary car parking at Upper and Lower Demesnes in the town, and viewing points along the route for school groups to watch the event.
