Nottinghamshire torch relay road closure warning

Businesses and motorists across Nottinghamshire are being urged to plan for the Olympic Torch relay.

On 28 June it will pass through the districts of Bassetlaw, Mansfield, Newark and Sherwood and Rushcliffe before reaching Nottingham city centre.

After spending the night in Nottingham, it will move on to Derbyshire on Friday 29 June.

The city , county and district councils have published details of road closures on their websites.

A spokesman for Nottinghamshire County Council said the authority had sent out about 8,000 letters advising affected businesses and residents about road closures and parking restrictions.

Nottingham City Councillor Jane Urquart added: "Our key aims are to help people enjoy what promises to be a fantastic occasion, while also minimising disruption to residents and businesses alike.

"[We want to] enable a clear route for the torch and torchbearers to pass through for everyone's enjoyment."
