Former Minister Dick finally notices lack of sports legacy

Another 2012 Games promoter, former Sports Minister Richard Caborn, has suddenly woken up to the fact that the 2012 Olympics are not delivering benefits claimed for them!

Raiders of Pudding Mill Stadium

The Pudding Mill White Elephant just won't lie down. CoeLtd is still hoping to bring the 2017 IAAF World Athletics Championships to London. But it all depends on there being an available stadium.

The loss of a stadium could prove terminal to those ambitions.
