London 2012: Overseas visitors wait for hours for tickets

Help

Hundreds of overseas visitors were forced to queue for hours as they tried to collect Olympic tickets from an agent in central London.

Spectators were told to pick up tickets from CoSport's office in Paddington, which is the official ticket agency for the USA, Canada, Australia, Norway and Sweden.

The agency has apologised for the delay and asked customers not to come at peak periods.
