Thousands of spectators are expected to line the route of the Krazy Races event from Queen Square down Darlington Street on Sunday.

Around 20 teams are expected to compete in the event being held for the first time in the city, after a successful race in Shrewsbury earlier this year.

But it will mean a string of buses stopping in the city centre will be diverted from 4am to 8pm due to part of Lichfield Street and Queens Square being shut on Sunday.
