London mayor Boris Johnson unveiled plans for use of the site today (17 August), which will enable thousands of journalists to get access to Olympic material.

Around 25,000 journalists and other representatives from international media organisations will gain accreditation for London 2012, and gain access to the official media centre in the Olympic Park. Should they wish, they will also have access to One Great George Street.

"Journalists joining us for these historic days in the summer of 2012 are now guaranteed a central working base in the heart of all the action," said Johnson.

"A stone’s throw from the London Media Centre lie some of the capital’s most iconic shots and locations, ready to be beamed into homes across the globe. I look forward to welcoming our visitors in 2012 and joining with them for the biggest party London has ever seen."

As well as the media centre up to 8,000 London Ambassadors will be located at key points will provide information and assistance to help visitors travel smoothly around the city.
