Three Charged Over Olympic Stadium Bid Spy Claims

Wednesday 14th November 2012

Three people have been charged with fraud following allegations of spying during the Olympic Park bidding process.

Met Police have been investigating claims by West Ham and the Olympic Park Legacy Company that Tottenham Hotspur spied on officials during its bid for the Olympic Stadium - which Spurs deny.

Richard Michael Forrest and Lee Stewart, both in their 30s, and Howard Hill, who's 58, are each due to appear at Westminster Magistrates court on the 28th of November.

The three men are charged with conspiracy to commit fraud by false representation.

Meanwhile, the two-year delay in re-opening the Olympic Stadium has been branded a "farce".
