Praise for London's ticketing

The Price of Gold report praised London 2012's affordable tickets plans such as the Pay your Age scheme for children, which also saw those over 60 pay a £16 flat fee.

The lack of a booking fee and the provision of free companion seats for spectators in wheelchairs was also a positive step, according to the committee.

It noted that London 2012 kept its promise to evenly spread tickets across its five price categories, but stated that each category price "varied between sessions and, for a large number, were skewed towards the high end".
