Olympics vow fails to save football pitches: Fields disposed of once every two weeks since the London Games

One school playing field has been sold off every two weeks since the London 2012 Olympics, new figures have revealed.

Ministers have given the nod to 26 sales since pledging to use the games to deliver a sporting legacy for children.

The Coalition promised to ‘seek to protect school playing fields’ when it formed in May 2010.

But official figures show that 57 have been approved for sale since then – and the pace of sell-offs quickened in the year of the Olympics.
