Report by MPs criticises Olympic 2012 tickets and funding

The lack of tickets made available to the public for some of the major Olympic events has been criticised by a group of MPs.

In its post-Games review the Public Accounts Committee also raised concerns that the National Lottery would not see the £2bn it put towards the cost of the Olympic Park repaid.

Overall the report said the Olympic and Paralympic Games were a "triumph" for the whole country.
