Expect to pay through your neck for food and drinks at the 2012 Olympic Games
Spectators will have to put up with high prices for food and drink for the Olympic Games in London, according to a report in the Daily Mail.
The report reveal that a basic lunch on a family day out could cost as much as £40.
With tight security in place fans will not be aloud to bring their own drinks into the site and visitors will be forced to pay £1.60 for a 500ml bottle of mineral water. It will be possible to bring empty water bottles, however, and fill them up at taps around the park for free.
Bringing your own food to an event, by contrast, will be permitted, but organisers have reserved the right to confiscate ‘excessive food’.
