Locog is refusing to apologise for the decision taken by them to move the marathon route for the London 2012 Olympics from the East End.
The Evening Standard have a copy of leaked letter sent by Locog to Tower Hamlets council explaining the reasons for the decision to move the route. Seemingly a major issue being the VIP Olympic traffic lanes.
Maybe so, but wouldn't Locog have considered the VIP traffic lanes at the time they were planning the original marathon route?
This row will continue.
