Olympics: Team GB 'disaster for Scotland' says Pete Wishart

The SNP's Pete Wishart claimed a joint Team GB football team at the London 2012 Olympics would be an "absolute disaster" for Scotland.

Edinburgh MP Alistair Darling was lukewarm on the idea, but there was more support for a combined British team from Welsh-born Lord Howard and Conservative MP Tracey Crouch.

The British Olympic Association has denied it was misleading when it announced a "historic agreement" to field a united GB football team next year.
