Olympic VIPs will be whisked around London in 4,000 BMWs – so much for the 'green Games'!

They have been billed as the ‘greenest’ Olympic Games in history, with spectators urged to abandon their cars and embrace public transport.

But a row has erupted after it emerged that thousands of VIPs will travel to events in London this summer in a rather more luxurious style.

BMW is to ship 4,000 brand-new luxury vehicles in from Germany to escort dignitaries and officials in a move described as ‘lunatic’ by critics.

The enormous fleet will include more than 3,000 BMW 3 and 5 Series saloons. Parked end to end, this would equate to a ten-mile tailback.

However, traffic should not be a problem for the VIPs who will cruise along specially reserved ‘games lanes’ near the venues. Full story...

Don't miss:
  1. Climate boss Pachauri uses car AND driver to travel one mile to office...
  2. Environmentalists want to save the earth but not its people. 
  3. Prince Charles and Gordon Brown take separate jets... to lecture world on global warming!!!
  4. Prince Charles has 6 cars but wants you and me to abandon ours to save the planet!!!
  5. Copenhagen climate summit: 1,200 limos, 140 private planes and caviar wedges...
