St John Ambulance volunteers will be among the thousands of people lining the route of the Olympic torch through Gloucestershire later. The trained first aiders will be on hand to give emergency medical aid to anyone who needs it.
The torch will start making its way through the county later and into tomorrow as part of its 70-day journey across the country. It will take in Brockworth, Shurdington, Cheltenham town centre and the racecourse, Gloucester, Maisemore, Hartpury, Corse and Staunton.
