Phoenix Eye, sister company of Phoenix Security will be in charge of safety at the 2012 Olympic Torch Relay in the North East

Phoenix Eye will be supplying stewarding for the 2012 Olympic Torch Relay, which takes place in Sunderland and Newcastle on Friday 15th June and Saturday 16th June.

The torch will be travelling down from Scotland on Thursday, entering Northumberland on Friday where it will travel down into Tyneside.

The relay will pass down through places such as Morpeth, Tynemouth and Wallsend and be expected to reach Newcastle on Friday at approximately 4:47pm. Here it will make a visit to St. James', as well as various other Newcastle landmarks, before being carried across the Tyne Bridge via zip wire by explorer Bear Grylls.

Saturday morning, at approximately 6:25 in its first ever visit to Gateshead, it will be carried via abseiling down The Sage before heading off towards Sunderland, Durham and Teesside and continuing its journey through the rest of the country.

Phoenix Eye will be on hand during the proceedings, maintaining security and safety throughout the event.
