London 2012: Lord Coe on second chance to get tickets


More than half of people who applied for tickets to the London 2012 Olympic Games did not receive any in the ballot.

According to figures, about 1.8m people applied for the 6.6m public tickets available but around 55% of applicants missed out.

There is a second ballot for the people who were unsuccessful but no tickets remain for the opening and closing ceremonies or athletics finals.

Lord Coe, chairman of the London Olympic Committee, explained how people can apply for tickets again in the second round.
