Spurs accused of Olympic 'spying'

Former Olympics minister Tessa Jowell has told BBC London 94.9 that claims Tottenham Hotspur put Olympic executives under surveillance during bidding for the 2012 stadium must be investigated.

Tottenham Hotspur FC monitored all 14 board members of the Olympic Park Legacy Company (OPLC), according to the OPLC's Chair, Baroness Ford.

The Premier League club said it "totally rejects the accusation in the strongest possible terms".

A 29-year-old man was detained in Sussex in connection with the claims.
