Tourism chiefs visited South Yorkshire to give full details of how the Tour De France’s Grand Depart will create a boost for the region.

Officials from the Welcome to Yorkshire agency came to the Magna Centre, Rotherham, to give a presentation about the race which arrives next year.

The Grand Depart, the preliminary stage of the Tour, includes three legs in the UK for 2014 - one of which runs from York to Sheffield on July 6.

An arts and cultural festival is also planned.
