London Mayor Boris Johnson has apologised to London businesses whose trade was hit by the Olympics.
His apology was to those businesses who lost money during the Olympics, when they had been promised a summer of bumper takings.
The mayor denied claims the capital became a "ghost town" during the summer spectacle, but admitted tills failed to ring in some shops after figures showed trade dipped in parts of the city.
Speaking to LBC 97.3 radio presenter, Nick Ferrari, Mr Johnson said trade was "patchy", but claimed the Games were "overwhelmingly for the benefit of the city".
