The route the iconic Olympic Torch will take across Sefton and West Lancashire has just been unveiled by the London 2012 organisers.


The London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games have said that the flame will travel between Bolton and Liverpool on Friday, June 1, and revealed the streets where you'll be able to see the torch pass through this area.


Sebastian Coe, Chairman of LOCOG said: “We hope local communities come out and line the streets to cheer on the Torchbearers, and celebrate the Olympic Games coming to the UK.“


On June 1 the torch will travel towards West Lancashire on its journey from Bolton, arriving from Croston into Burscough. It will then pass through Ormskirk, Southport, Ainsdale, Formby, Crosby and Aintree, before heading to St Helens and onto its final destination of the day in Liverpool, before crossing the sea to the Isle of Man.


The torch route has been carefully chosen to ensure the flame will travel within ten miles of 95% of the UK's population, and on average 115 torchbearers will carry it on its journey each day on its trip around the nation.
