London rioters targeted Olympic Park

The Metropolitan Police’s Assistant Commissioner Lynne Owens told the Home Affairs Committee that rioters in Hackney, one of the five Olympic Host Boroughs, had planned to storm the Olympic Park and Westfield Straford City, which is adjacent to the facilities being built for London 2012 and is due to officially open next month.

Westfield is also due to be the headquarters for several teams and sponsors during the Games, including Team GB.
