West Ham win OS bid

West Ham have been granted preferred bidder status for the Olympic Stadium - for the second time.

London mayor Boris Johnson confirmed this lunchtime that the club has been selected as the London Legacy Development Corporation's "unanimous" choice as chosen cadidate to take on the 99-year lease.

West Ham were initially granted sole tenancy of the stadium in March 2011 by the Olympic Park Legacy Committee.

However that decision was overturned following a series of legal wrangles - spearheaded by Tottenham Hotspur and Leyton Orient owner Barry Hearn - seven months later, leading to a second bidding process.

More to follow on this soon...
