A 200-strong army of volunteers are gearing up to meet Olympic visitors in Kent on Friday - expected to be the busiest day for Olympic travel so far.

The "Greeters" are posted at key transport hubs including Dover, Ebbsfleet, and Ashford International station, as well as major visitor accommodation areas such as the University of Kent and Gravesham campsite.

On Friday, more than 7,300 spectators are expected to be coming into the county from mainland Europe via Eurotunnel and Dover ferry services alone from France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany.
