Delhi Games village 'unliveable'

The Commonwealth Games Federation head has demanded the Indian government take immediate steps to improve conditions at the athletes' village in Delhi.

Michael Fennell said advance teams had been shocked by the state of facilities.

Delegates from four teams reportedly described the accommodation as filthy, unhygienic and unliveable.

But organisers of the Games, which run from 3 to 14 October, said they would provide an "excellent facility".

Sanjoy Majumder reports from outside the village.
