We can expect the toughest ever air security restrictions during the Olympics and Paralympics this summer.

The Royal Air Force will monitor the skies over London 24 hours a day and say they'll be able to identify any unknown aircraft within minutes.

It will be the first time since the Second World War that the Ministry of Defence has taken control of London's airspace.

Meantime, Heathrow Airport's told London's Heart this summer's Games will be the biggest challenge in it's history.

20 million pounds is being invested to make sure it can cope with the huge surge in passengers.

And there's a promise that all border desks will be manned before, after and during the Games, after recent concerns about long queues at the airport.
