London's 2012 celebrations cancelled

The celebrations scheduled to mark the homecoming of London's successful Olympic bid team have been cancelled following Thursday morning's terrorist blasts in the capital.

The London 2012 bid team were due to have a fanfare farewell in Singapore before flying back into Heathrow early on Friday when they were expected to hold a news conference at the airport.

Dignitaries were then due to tour the proposed Olympic venues by helicopter but secretary of state for Culture, Media and Sport Tessa Jowell confirmed the celebrations have been postponed.

"The plans that were been laid out for the farewell and arrival celebrations have been cancelled," she said. "It would be completely inappropriate in view of this appalling tragedy."
