THE Olympic torch arrives in Adur, Arun and Worthing today (Monday, July 16).

The torch is set to arrive In Arundel – after visiting South Bersted, Bognor Regis and Westergate – at about 3.26pm, near the western end of Maltravers Street, by the A27 roundabout,

Three torchbearers from East Sussex and one from Germany will escort the flame in 300m-long relays, through Arundel, setting off along Maltravers Street, into the centre of the town and making their way down the High Street.

The relay route will then turn left into Mill Road and enter Arundel Castle, briefly, before heading back down Mill Road, into Queen Street and eventually finishing at the eastern end of The Causeway, near the Arundel railway station.

The torch will then move off to Worthing.

It will start at Lamorna Grove, near to Broadwater Green, at 4.29pm, with each torchbearer running a 300-metre stretch through the two towns.

At the change-over points, the torches will “kiss” before the next person starts their run.

The torch will visit streets including Broadwater Street West, Broadwater Road, Chapel Road, South Street Square, Marine Parade and Brighton Road before arriving at Brooklands Pleasure Park at 5.14pm.

The relay will then visit South Street and Grinstead Lane, Lancing.
