Wales Welcomes London 2012 Olympic Torch



It is predicted that around 8,000 people will carry the flame on its 8,000 mile for 70-day journey around the UK. Today the olympic torch has arrived in Wales, which will follow a tour of the country on route to the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games on 27 July 2012 in London.

Everyone is joining in the celebrations with entertainment scheduled to be in top gear later today in the capital Cardiff concentrating the celebrations at Bute's park. Roads are being closed around the city centre to mark the occasion and many people are expected to welcome the torch's arrival at the capital of Wales.
