Jackie: So Richard, you talked about security. Is that going to be tight on the ground?
Richard: Well, this is the biggest ever security operation in peacetime UK. It's involving all members of the armed services from the special operations, the SAS, and the navy's biggest warship is going to be moored in the Thames and there's restriction on airspace.
Richard: On an individual basis there are lots of items prohibited; you're not allowed to bring them into the Olympic area.
Jackie: This is for the visitors.
Richard: This is for the visitors. Just like on an airline, you're not allowed to have liquids more than 100 millilitres.
Jackie: You mean you can't take bottled water into the Olympic St... into the Olympic Park?
Richard: You can forget that, it's a tightened down area. No bicycles, pets or tents. On their website there's a whole list of things you're not allowed to bring in, they are prohibited and also, in addition, they've got a restricted list which are things... they're not prohibited but you may not be able to take them in and these include oversized hats.
Jackie: Well, I think that's fair enough Richard. [Richard laughs] If you're sitting behind someone who's got a big hat on you won't be able to see anything.
Richard: No oversized hats, no flags. You're not allowed to bring in a flag of a country not participating at the games.
Jackie: Well, that makes sense.
Richard: Fair enough um... and also no excessive amounts of food.
Jackie: Ha ha, that's 'cos they want everyone to eat at McDonald's. And the other thing about McDonald's, Richard, which I didn't say before was that they have a monopoly on chips, would you believe. You cannot ... there are other restaurants in the Olympic Park, you cannot buy chips from any of the other restaurants, only McDonald's is selling chips, except if they're selling fish'n'chips. So if you want to buy chips, you can only buy them from McDonald's.
