An abandoned sculpture to remember the British victims of the September 11th terrorist attacks is to be put up at the Olympic Park.
An abandoned patch of land near the Olympic Park is to become the UK's largest indoor ski centre, London Mayor Boris Johnson has announced.
Two men are in hospital after being stabbed at London's Wireless music festival, Scotland Yard has said.
The Olympic Park has won the Mayor of London's ‘Planning Excellence’ award at this year's London Planning Awards. The site was developed from a contaminated brownfield site and is now being transformed to include thousands of homes and eight venues for concerts and sporting events.
Tributes have been paid to the man who oversaw the creation of London 2012's widely-praised parklands.
John Hopkins has died suddenly at the age of 59.
He was the landscape architect in charge of transforming more than 250 acres of the Olympic Park between 2007 and 2011.
Mr Hopkins - who studied at the university of Greenwich - died of natural causes at his home in America.
Concerts and festivals will be held at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park this summer.
A series of events, including Hard Rock Calling and the Wireless Festival, will be hosted at the venue ahead of the park's full opening in the spring of 2014.
The Olympic legacy has to be kept safe from party politics, London 2012 supremo Lord Coe said during a celebration of the Games at Labour's party conference.
The Tory peer was given a warm reception by the Labour crowd as athletes, torch bearers and volunteer Games Makers took centre stage.
Lord Coe said the legacy had to be "looked at in a consensual way" as he praised the way the Olympics had not become a "party political property".
But the cross-party consensus was broken as Labour's former culture secretary Dame Tessa Jowell and the PE teacher who mentored double gold medallist Mo Farah attacked the Government's "dismantling" of school sports.
There are currently four bidders hoping to take over the venue but West Ham are the favourites.
But at his first meeting chairing the organisation deciding the future of the Olympic Park, the London Mayor told London Tonight that he is not "wedded to football".
Have West Ham's chances of moving into the Olympic Stadium been dealt a blow by Boris Johnson?
The details now from our political correspondent Simon Harris.

It took four days, but four days in, the fears about the fragility of London's public transport network came true.
One of the key tube lines to reach the Olympic Park here was suspended for hours this morning, the delays hitting spectators and commuters alike.
It was the first real test for Londoners still working in the city while the Games go on. It comes as more and more businesses are complaining that the Olympics has actually caused a big fall in trade. Our Olympics Correspondent Simon Harris on the faliure on the Central Line.
The three bidders competing to build the first neighbourhood at the site of the London 2012 Games have been named today by the Olympic Park Legacy Company (OPLC).
East Thames and Countryside Properties, Barratt Homes and LeFrak Organisation plus Taylor Wimpey and London & Quadrant have been shortlisted from six would-be developers to build Chobham Manor, between the Athletes' Village and the VeloPark at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford.
Talks will now be held with the three bidders who will have to fine-tune their proposals before they are submitted in June.
The OPLC aims to make an appointment this summer so that the first homes can be ready in 2014.
