WHY not be a part of the Herald team during the Morpeth leg of the Olympic torch relay?

We have enlisted several students from King Edward VI School to help us report on the event and to capture images of the special day.

They will be out and about on the streets, chatting to spectators and soaking up the atmosphere to present a full report in next week’s edition of the paper.

However, we are also inviting our readers to play a part in the coverage.

Please send us your photographs of the event and tell us what you thought of it.

You can e-mail

Alternatively, call us on 01670 517171, visit our office or post your pictures to 17 Newgate Street, Morpeth, Northumberland, NE61 1AW.

People can also give updates on the progress of the torch on twitter @Morpeth_Herald
