London Olympics countdown reaches 200 days

8:06 am on 10 January 2012

The London Olympics countdown has entered its final 200 days.

To mark the occasion Prime Minister David Cameron held his first cabinet meeting of the New Year at the Olympic Park in Stratford, east London, instead of at Downing Street.

Cameron says six out of the eight Olympic venues have already secured their future after the Games.

The government will hold a series of business summits during the Games which it hopes will generate nearly two billion dollars of revenue for British companies.
