Anger over empty seats at Greenwich Park
Spectators at Greenwich Park were met with banks of empty seats at the equestrian events, leading to many complaints on social media.
Yesterday (August 30th) was the first of six days of Paralympic equestrian action and was a good day for Team GB as Lee Pearson and Natasha Baker led the way with impressive performances.
Tickets have been unavailable on the website and organisers had said that all sessions were sold, Horse and Hound reports.
As the arena needs to be reset and redressed after each grade, days have been split into two sessions of morning and afternoon.
Tickets have been sold separately as a result, so all spectators have to leave the venue before the second session visitors are allowed to enter.
Spokesman for LOCOG Anne Greenaway commented on the situation: "We only released 10,000 tickets as we are limited by the number of people it is possible to get in and out of the venue in a short space of time."
