Olympics chief accuses Tottenham of ‘spying’ on executives

A 29-year-old man from Sussex has been jailed in connection with claims by the Olympic Park Legacy Company (OPLC) Chair, Baroness Ford, that Tottenham Hotspur have been monitoring the members of the organisation, according to the BBC.

Tottenham, who are a potential tenant for the Olympic Stadium after the games, have issued a statement saying that the club: “totally rejects the accusation in the strongest possible terms.”

However, Baroness Ford told the London Assembly: “My board were put under surveillance by Tottenham Hotspur and the chairman of Tottenham Hotspur felt confident enough to say that in the Sunday Times several months ago, that all 14 members of my board were put under surveillance.

“The Metropolitan Police are now conducting an investigation into that surveillance,” she added.

Spurs, along with Leyton Orient, were recently involved in a legal battle after West Ham United were awarded the stadium, although that decision has since been revoked.
