Tessa: '2012 has been a passion and a pleasure'

Former Olympics minister Tessa Jowell sits down with BBC London's Adrian Warner and talks about her pride in being involved in bringing the Games to east London and her hopes for the future.

She said if she has a future role in the 2012 Games, the decision is down to London's Olympic chief Seb Coe.

Asked if she is sad at 'handing her baby over', she says: "We lost the election. That's the brutality of politics."
