Plans to control the amount of advertising and trading during next summer's London Olympics have been published.

Billboard adverts, posters, flyers, and give-aways will be banned within a few hundred metres of the 2012 Olympics venues

Organisers are keen to stamp out unauthorised trading or ambush marketing to protect official sponsors.
