London 2012: Coe says venues are 'stuffed' with people

Olympics venues are "stuffed to the gunnels" with sports fans, London 2012 chairman Lord Coe has insisted amid a row over empty seats.

He spoke after hundreds of seats were left unfilled on Saturday and Sunday morning at events including swimming, rowing, tennis and basketball.

At some venues, tickets in "Olympic family" ticket areas - often with the best views - have remained unfilled.

Lord Coe spoke out as the row mounted over unfilled seats in several Olympic venues - mostly in the "accredited" areas sections.
