Three men await sentencing over Olympic Stadium 'spying' trial

Three men await sentencing over Olympic Stadium 'spying' trial

Howard Hill, Richard Forrest and Lee Stewart pleaded guilty on 8 November to unlawfully obtaining personal data from West Ham vice-chairperson Karren Brady and other West Ham executives, as well as the Olympic Park Legacy Company.

United, Tottenham and Leyton Orient all applied to use the stadium in Stratford after the 2012 London Olympics.

West Ham eventually came out on top in the bidding process but Hill, Forrest and Stewart were arrested after claims that Tottenham had spied on Olympic officials, something which the club denied.

The trio had previously denied the charge at Southwark Crown Court.
