Tickets to see torch relay Durham City.

A TOTAL of 800 tickets will be given away so residents can see cricketer Paul Collingwood, pictured, carry the Olympic Flame.

The sportsman will take the flame through Durham City Market Place on Sunday, June 17.

The tickets are free, but limited to six per person and will be available from the Gala Theatre from 10am today.

The decision to restrict numbers in the Market Place between 8am and 10am on June 17 has been taken to ensure the safety and comfort of both the crowds and people involved in the Olympic torch relay.

Tickets will be issued on a first come first served basis and over the counter only. They can not be reserved over the phone or online.

The evening celebration event on Saturday June 16 is not ticketed and is open to all. To get to the Market Place on Sunday June 17 between 8am and 10am, people need to present their tickets at the top of Silver Street or at Claypath (next to St Nicholas Church).
