Olympic Torch comes to Wales

There's now less than 3 months to go until the 2012 Olympics gets underway in Cardiff (yes, that's right. The very first event of the games is being staged in the Millennium Stadium).

And of course, before any Olympic games you need an Olympic flame procession and on the 25 and 26 May that's exactly what we get.  The flame will spend two days in South East Wales with the route taking it from Monmouth across to Abergavenny and then Blaenavon, Pontypool and Newport before heading to Cardiff for a big concert to mark its first day in Wales.

The following day sees the flame take in towns such as Caerphilly, Merthyr Tydfil and Bridgend before heading to Swansea.
