Olympic travel 'big challenge' for London Bridge station

An extra 70,000 people are expected to travel through London Bridge station today as Equestrian events continue at Greenwich Park.

Robin Gisby, Network Rail managing director of network operations told the BBC:

"We've planned this for some time, we've tested it a few times with commuters over the last couple of weeks and it's a big challenge for us.

"It's really the first time where we've got commuters coming into London, spectators going to all the events and other visitors here as well. We want to get it right today."
