The Olympic Torch’s route through Mablethorpe, Sutton on Sea and Trusthorpe, as well as the lucky torchbearers, have been announced this morning (Monday).

Coming from Louth and passing through the villages, the torch will pass along the coast just after 9am on Wednesday, June 27, exactly a month before the 2012 Games begin.

It sets off from Alford Road in Mablethorpe, travelling along the High Street, Victoria Road, Seaholme Road and the A52 to Sutton.

It travels all the way along the A52 to Trusthorpe, and into Sutton on Sea where it will take in the High Street and Station Road before coming to an end on the A52 Huttoft Road, shortly before Church Lane.

The lucky names that will get to carry the torch will be Daisy Southern, Daniel Thickett, Frank Barraclough, Mick Edwards, Rob Holland, Sandra Hartley, Rees I`anson, Sheelagh Weir, Ian Ward and Sam Rowlett.

It then goes onto Mumby and further down the coast to Skegness.

For the full story, see the Leader on Wednesday, just 55p.
