Tottenham: fail

Tottenham's bid to seek judicial review of the decision to award tenancy of the Olympic Stadium to West Ham United has been rebuffed.

Spurs - along with Barry Hearn's Leyton Orient - had sought a review of the process, claiming that West Ham had been given an unfair advantage.

However their plea was rejected by Mr Justice Davis this afternoon, who told the two clubs that he was happy with the decision made by the OPLC (Olympic Park Legacy Committee) to grant use of the £500million stadium to West Ham.

Spurs/Orient had made no less than five applications to seek judicial review of the case - four of which were thrown out today with a fifth to be heard later this week (Thursday).

The news was welcomed by the OPLC, who told the BBC: "We are pleased with the ruling and continue to make good progress with the Preferred Bidder to agree final terms."

West Ham vice-chair Karren Brady said: "We welcome today’s news as a further endorsement of our strong and viable legacy vision."
