You can now nominate people to carry the Olympic Torch through Cambridge and Peterborough.

The torch will pass through both cities during a tour of the country before next year's London Olympics.

It will be in Peterborough on Tuesday 3rd July, and in Cambridge on Saturday 7th July.

People of all ages, and particularly between 12 and 24 years old, can be nominated to carry the torch during the visits.

Anyone wishing to nominate a torch bearer must write 150 words on why they are putting forward the individual’s name, and these words must evidence how somebody has gone beyond their ‘personal best’ in any walk of life.

Cambridge MP Julian Huppert told Heart: "This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of history in the making.

Not only are we so fortunate to have the Olympic Torch coming to Cambridge, but we have the chance to play a personal part in it."
