No 10 confirms some Olympic troops did pay £1 for showers

A Downing Street spokesman has told ITV News a "small logistical unit", including an unspecified number of troops, were paying £1 for showers while they were setting up the shower unit for troops staying at temporary living quarters at Tobacco Dock in east London.

However, the unit is now in place and the troops will be refunded, if they have not been so already.
