CALLS for the Olympic Torch to visit Tamworth as part of the build up to the London 2012 Games have been made by the town's MP.

Christopher Pincher has written to the minister responsible for the Olympics urging him to consider Tamworth in the Olympic Torch Relay.

"Tamworth is a fantastic town in the middle of Great Britain with a rich history and an active Athletics Club and deserves this honour," Mr Pincher said. "The sight of a torchbearer passing through the castle grounds would be an iconic image of our town, showcasing Tamworth's history to an international audience."
