Olympics Minister Tessa Jowell has announced the remaining 12 members of London's Board of Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA).

The ODA will take responsibility for the construction of the venues and overall infrastructure of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The new members join existing chairman, Jack Lemley and chief executive David Higgins who were appointed late last year.

The group at large have experience in finance, construction, regeneration, media and local government.

Lemley said: "This is not just about a month of sport in 2012. This is also the biggest regeneration project in Europe. I believe we have a board of real talent, energy and vision that can help the ODA meet this challenge and deliver in the years to come".

  • Lorraine Baldry, chair of the London Thames gateway development corporation
