Today Boris Johnson launched a special Olympics Manifesto stating that his two priorities were to deliver the games on budget and delivering an economic legacy.
His pledge to deliver 11,000 homes on the Olympic Park will transform East London.
On a different note the Olympic torch will be carried through Croydon and in particular Waddon on July 23rd.
The torch is scheduled to arrive in Croydon from Crystal Palace Park at 11.37am. It will take in Southbridge Road, Duppas Hill Road, Warrington Road and the Purley Way.
