Olympics tickets re-sale starts today for London 2012 Games

At last! People who want to sell on their unwanted Olympic tickets will finally be able to so via the London 2012 website later today.

The site, which was suspended on the day of launch almost two weeks ago, will be up and running from 3pm.

All tickets offered for re-sale during a two week period will be bought directly by organisers LOCOG before being sold on to the public from April.

LOCOG commercial director Chris Townsend said: “We are sorry for any inconvenience caused by the suspension of our ticketing resale platform.

“We made a commitment to our customers to give them a safe, secure and legal way of selling Olympic and Paralympic tickets which they are no longer able to use.
