If someone takes a new born baby to some areas of the 2012 Olympics, they will need to have a ticket – for the baby.

(After a lot of confusion about the status of babes in arms, Locog have now confirmed that babies aged 12 months or under, will be allowed into almost all London 2012 venues without a ticket but they have to be strapped securely to a parent or carer in a baby carrier, sling or similar item.

The only exceptions are Wembley Stadium, St James’ Park, Old Trafford and North Greenwich Arena, where existing licensing agreements mean all spectators need a ticket, regardless of their age.Organisers Locog have said that every baby for these venues will need a ticket, even if they do not need a seat.)
