Residents of an east London tower block have lost their High Court battle to prevent surface-to-air missiles being stationed on their roof during the Olympics.

They argued that having weapons on the Fred Wigg Tower in Leytonstone would make the building a terrorist target, but the The Ministry of Defence (MoD) said the move was legitimate and proportionate.

David Enright, who represents the residents, said the ruling had wide-ranging implications.
