Paralympian Oscar Pistorius, who is accused of murdering his girlfriend, will not be welcome at the Anniversary Games at London's Olympic Park this year, organisers said yesterday.

The three-day event to commemorate the first anniversary of the London Olympics will include a day of Paralympic sport, but UK Athletics chairman Ed Warner said Pistorius won’t be invited.

“I don’t want to see the event turning into a media circus. It would over-shadow every other athlete here,” Warner told BBC radio.
