Jowell defends Olympic ticket sales
- From the section Olympics
Shadow Olympics minister Tessa Jowell defends the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) over their handling of the ticketing process.
The Labour politician describes the situation as an "extraordinarily difficult process", believing LOCOG to be "victims of their own success".
She also denies any lost public confidence in the Games and defends the number of tickets allocated to sponsors of London 2012.
