Tottenham's bid for judicial review of Olympic Stadium decision rejected

Tottenham's request for a judicial review of the Olympic Stadium decision has been rejected, the BBC is reporting. Spurs and Leyton Orient contested the Olympic Park Legacy Company's verdict that West Ham and Newham Council should be the future occupants of the venue.

But Judge Mr Justice Davis told them there are no grounds for a review.

"We are pleased with the ruling and continue to make good progress with the preferred bidder to agree final terms," the Olympic Park Legacy Company said.

West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady commented: "We welcome today's news as a further endorsement of our strong and viable legacy vision. We hope we can now focus all our energy and passion on delivering a fantastic multi-use Olympic Stadium for the whole nation.

"We were honoured to be unanimously chosen as preferred bidder by the OPLC. Their decision, after a robust and diligent process, was subsequently backed by the Mayor of London and government.

"Our vision - in partnership with the London Borough of Newham - remains for a globally-recognised destination for all, with community at its core, capable of hosting world-class sporting events, including top-level football and athletics."
