A Berkshire council will give away 23 pairs of London 2012 tickets to its town's nominated unsung heroes.

Slough said it is looking for people with the Olympic "values of courage, determination, inspiration, equality, respect, friendship and excellence".

The judging panel will be led by the Mayor of Slough and people can nominate online or send in paper forms.

Nominees need to live in the Slough borough and the closing date for nominations is Friday 18 May.

The council has 21 pairs of tickets to rowing or sprint canoeing at the Eton Dorney Olympic venue in Buckinghamshire, near Slough.

It will also give away one pair for the opening ceremony and one pair for the closing ceremony at the Olympic stadium in London.

Chief Executive Ruth Bagley said: "Having the Olympics on our doorstep is very exciting and with the torch relay coming through Slough on 10 July and the main events starting on 27 July it will be a summer to remember."
