Signal failures caused severe delays on a key London Underground line connecting the city centre with the Olympic Park, transport chiefs said yesterday, on the first day of athletics at the Games.

The Central Line was partly suspended in east London — home to the Olympic Stadium — for more than an hour at the height of the morning rush hour, on what is is expected to be the busiest day so far. Spectators were heading to the Olympic Park stadium for the first track and field events.
