London Olympics legacy questioned

Residents affected by last year's rioting wonder how athletic infrastructure will improve lives.

    One of the key aims of the London 2012 Olympics was to create a sporting legacy for Great Britain.

    Last year there was anarchy on the streets of London as rioting and looting spread across the city, just a short distance from the Olympic stadiums.

    Now, those most affected by the riots are asking how exactly things have changed, and wondering if the Olympic infrastructure will improve their own communities.
