Commonwealth bosses sorry for park and ride delays

On the busiest day of action organisers of the Commonwealth Games have apologised to spectators who were forced to wait for as long as two hours for park and ride buses.

More than 350,000 spectators were scheduled to watch free and ticketed events on "Super Sunday" but the volume of people overwhelmed transport links at park and ride facilities.

Bike mechanic Gareth Allen tweeted: "Been standing in a stationary queue at Silverburn park and ride for over an hour. Very poor organisation and communication Glasgow 2014."

Another Catherine McLaughlin also registered her complaint on twitter, saying: "We are missing the start of Athletics event due to massive P&R fail at Silverburn."

Glasgow 2014 director of transport and logistics Michael Renshaw said they were working hard to ensure a smooth service. He added: "We're aware some spectators experienced queues at some park and ride facilities today and thank them for their patience."
