Olympic bid visit 'cost 680,000'
The International Olympic
The 13-stong inspection team was entertained by the Queen
The bill for the International Olympic Committee's London visit was 680,000, the culture secretary has said.

Some 530,000 of this was spent on presentations, hiring venue space and technical support, Tessa Jowell said.

A further 150,000 was spent on preparations for the visit, she adds in a Commons written answer to Labour former sports minister Kate Hoey.

The inspection team spent four days in London assessing the capital's bid for the 2012 Games.
