Andrew Boff, London Assembly Member, Olympic Spokesman and Hackney resident reacts to the announcement that West Ham will become tenants at the Olympic Stadium:

“Now that the deal seems to have been finalised, Londoners deserve to know how West Ham are going to make the stadium work for football. West Ham and the LLDC must therefore urgently release the details of how they will use the stadium, including, for example, details of the retractable seating that will have to be installed. The Mayor must also confirm who will be responsible for paying for the costs of converting the stadium to be fit for football. Londoners will want to know how much they will have to cough up, given the vast amounts that the tax payer has already contributed, and also how much West Ham will be contributing.”
