Games food 'being thrown away'

Staff working at a major Games caterer have claimed that large amounts of food prepared for teams are being thrown away.

Employees working for catering firm Aramark told BBC London they were being ordered to throw away food meant for Olympic and Paralympic teams immediately after it was cooked.

The Games' environmental watchdog has called for Locog to investigate.

Aramark says it denies any suggestion it "improperly disposed of food".

The firm has been contracted by Locog, the Olympic and Paralympic organisers, to provide food at various Olympic venues including the athletes' village in Stratford and the sailing centre in Weymouth.

But the allegations relate to the Royal Holloway venue which serves rowing teams at Eton Dorney.
