Spurs land blow in fight for stadium

Tottenham Hotspur and Leyton Orient have been granted the right to a judicial review regarding the decision to award the 2012 Olympic Stadium to West Ham United.

The Olympic Park Legacy Company (OPLC) opted for a bid put forward by West Ham earlier this year but Spurs have fought the decision ever since and on Wednesday won the latest legal battle over the £486 million venue.

A High Court judge in London gave the club the permission to challenge the decision, but Mr Justice Collins only had to decide whether Tottenham had an "arguable'' case at this stage of proceedings.

On Monday, Tottenham failed in their appeal to another official body over the use of the east London venue after an independent investigation upheld the original verdict.

A review by forensic accountants Moore Stephens concluded there was no reason to re-open the bidding process, despite allegations that a director of the OPLC, Dionne Knight, was paid by West Ham during the negotiations.

According to a BBC report, Moore Stephens concluded that there is no evidence to suggest Knight had any influence over the decision.

Spurs went to High Court on Wednesday to demand a judicial review and have won the right to do so.
