Olympic trials divide Londoners

Preparations on schedule at the home of Greenwich Mean Time but many not happy as countdown begins to London 2012.


    The first test event for the London 2012 Olympics has taken place in one of the British capital's most historic sites - Greenwich Park, which opened in 1433.

    Riders and organisers are happy with how preparations are progressing, but some Londoners are less than impressed with the choice of venue, as Lee Wellings reports.
