A NEW webcam overlooking the site of the London 2012 Velodrome has gone online.
But last night’s rain in London left a dampener on the webcam when much of the vision was spoiled by large droplets.
The camera was set in motion by the Olympics authority after a wave of public demand for progress reports on East London’s mammoth construction project at Stratford.
It shows updated images of the Velodrome throughout the day on the London 2012 website.
