Olympic Park To Close For 10 Months

The Olympic Park is going to re-open for the public to use exactly a year after the opening ceremony.

The park in Stratford will close after the Paralympic Games ends in September to get rid of the temporary buildings and re-do the roads and bridges.

It will re-open on July 27th next year.

Today, the finished Olympic tower, the huge red, steel structure, designed by Anish Kapoor, known as the ArcelorMittal Orbit, will be officially unveiled.

Meanwhile 9 hundred thousand tickets have gone back on sale for people who didn't get any tickets in either of the first 2 ballots.

They will have priority, with 31 hours of exclusive access to the tickets.
