The new Government Minister for Sport and Olympics, Hugh Robertson, who took up his post this week, said: “I remember as Shadow Olympics Minister the way the area looked before construction started.

“So I’m particularly delighted taking up my post as Olympics Minister to see how much has been achieved. It is an inspiring story.”
