Olympic Torch Goes through Newtown Road!

Huge crowds are expected to watch as the Olympic flame is carried through

Ledbury, Bartestree Lugwardine, Hereford through Edgar Street and Newtown Road.

The torch is expected in Bartestree at 10.25am and Lugwardine at 11.01am before reaching Hereford.

It will stop at Hereford Sixth Form College for an hour before passing through the city centre and onto Edgar Street near Kidwells House and the Football Stadium.

The torch then goes to Leominster and Shropshire.

Traffic delays are more than likely as the convoy passes through and people are encouraged to plan their journey accordingly.
