both olympic village and stratford city are fantastic, i really like those new shops around westfield shopping centre, but the current stratford station is not so great like kings cross or st pancreas (i can't spell) stations

Excellent images in and around Westfield but it's looking a little like a ghost town! No doubt it will be manic come the Olympics.

Very comprehensive tour, Stratford already has a fresh face, with or without the Olympics.

Tommy Davis, 26, from Loughborough, was the first runner across the line in 25 minutes 11 seconds. Stuart Bloor, from Crewe, was the first wheelchair racer.
