Olympic torch to travel through Havering
The Olympic torch will be coming to Havering.
The torch is doing a 70-day relay around the country, starting from Lands End.
A search for 8,000 “inspirational” people to carry the torch began this week.
Havering Council is encouraging nominations.
Cllr Andrew Curtin said: “We are delighted that the Olympic flame will be visiting Havering.
