Westfield shut to non-ticket holders on Friday & Saturday

Transport for London has explained why the Westfield shopping centre by the Olympic Park will be shut to non-ticket holders tomorrow and Saturday:

Between 10:30am and 5pm on each of these days, the Westfield shopping centre will only be accessible to accredited workers, members of the public with, or collecting, a Games ticket or using hospitality venues.

This Friday and Saturday will be the busiest days of the Games, with more than 200,000 people travelling to the Olympic Park alone. Because of the huge number of people coming to the Park on those days at certain times we have to restrict general public access to Westfield Stratford City.
