ITV News has been given the first glimpse inside the Olympic Stadium, as work begins to transform the site into West Ham's new home.
The distinctive floodlights will soon disappear, and diggers have already begun removing the turf. Simon Harris reports:
One of the iconic symbols of the London Olympics is about to disappear. The cluster of lighting towers which gave the main stadium its distinctive look are to be taken down. Work to transform the showpiece venue into a new home for West Ham began today.
The three-year project involves replacing the roof, building new hospitality suites and installing retractable seating over the athletics track. Some of the triangular floodlight towers may be put back as ornaments - but not all of them because of their weight.
Other work includes digging up the grass to allow giant cranes to be installed and buring the running track beneath a protective layer of synthetic sheet and crushed gravel. The stadium is due to re-open in 2016.

I don’t think my achievements will ever really sink in but when I do look back I can be very proud of what I’ve done and how I’ve done it.
I guess if there was anything I wanted to pass on from my time in the sport it would be that you should never let any obstacle get in your way. With hard work there’s always a way to succeed and always a way to achieve your dreams.
