£103m remains in Olympics contingency fund

After ministers revealed a £377m surplus in the government Olympic budget, it seems a further £103m remains in the contingency fund. Savings and unspent contingency amount to £480m. These figures suggest the final bill will be just under £9bn from a budget of £9.3bn.

It's not all positive - the cost of the Olympic village has risen by £36m to almost £750m. City Hall will get £30m from the sale of the village. The Government says London 2012 (Locog) will publish its accounts in the New Year.
