Recycling Olympic rubbish

A fifth of all the plastic bottles thrown away during the Olympic games in London will be recycled in Lincolnshire. Continuum Recycling in Hemswell is the largest plastics recycling plant in the world. Special bins will be placed around the capital to collect the bottles in.

Ben Swift injured

Rotherham cyclist Ben Swift may have suffered a major Olympic setback - after a nasty crash in training today.

It's reported the 24-year-old has fractured his right shoulder, and he's had to pull out of the Giro d'Italia, which starts in Denmark on Saturday.

It could leave him facing a struggle to be fit for the London games. On Twitter Ben says he's due to undergo more tests tomorrow.
