One of the four free-admission venues planned for Tour de France spectator hubs in York has been moved.

The Monk Stray hub has been moved to the city's all-weather Huntington Stadium to prevent possible damage at the original venue, the council said.

The second stage of the race starts at York Racecourse on 6 July and 20,000 tickets for that event have already gone.

The Huntington Stadium is also to host the "Grand Departy" concert on 4 July.

The city's other hubs are to be found at the racecourse, the Designer Outlet, and Rowntree Park.

Large screens are to be used to relay the action from the Tour de France to spectators at the hubs, along with music and entertainment.

Councillor Sonja Crisp, of City of York Council, said the city was looking forward to a "fantastic long weekend".
