The Olympic torch is coming to the city.

Samsung is bringing the torch to the Ridings Shopping Centre to encourage nominations for the Olympic torch relay.

The torch will be visiting Leeds during its 8,000-mile journey across the UK over 70 days in the run up to the 2012 London Olympics.

Samsung is giving local heroes the chance to carry the torch and nominations close September 30.

The people of Wakefield can nominate people and have their photo taken with the torch at the Ridings on Sunday, September 25.
