A decision on who might become the new tenant of the Olympic Stadium could be made today.

The future of the £429 million showpiece venue is up for discussion at a board meeting of the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC).

Whoever is named as preferred bidder may secure a new home at the Olympic Park in Stratford, east London, under a lease of up to 99 years.

West Ham United, Intelligent Transport Services in association with Formula One, the University College of Football Business (UCFB) and Leyton Orient are on the shortlist.
