Olympic cops arrest blogger

Issue No. 2302

A blogger was arrested on Thursday of last week for filming the Olympic construction site in Leyton Marsh, east London.

Mike Wells, who runs the Games Monitor website, was injured as bailiffs dragged him away from Sandy Lane where he was filming.

He was arrested and held at Leyton Custody Centreā€”a miniature police jail built specially for the Olympics.
