Queen to view Olympic Park site

The Queen will today see the site of the 200 ha Olympic Park - the development at the heart of London's 2012 Games.
An 80,000-seat stadium and a host of sporting facilities will be built on the vast area in Stratford, east London, ready for the high profile event in seven years' time.

The Queen will be taken to the 21st floor of Holden Point residential tower block to view the site, where workers are clearing the ground and laying power lines and pipes underground.
