Bid Deadline Nears for London Olympic Stadium Takeover

A deadline is approaching for private firms to submit bids to take over operations of the new Olympic stadium being built for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

So far only three parties are known to have expressed an interest but a "handful" of others are expected in the next fortnight.

They have until September 30 to submit their bids to the Olympic Park Legacy Company (OPLC).

The OPLC is the body which is tasked with finding a tenant for the 80,000-seater venue in Stratford, east London.
