UF alum lives in London, says Olympics put stress on city
Thousands of people are arriving in London for the 2012 summer Olympic games, with the opening ceremonies scheduled for Friday.

We couldn’t send someone to London to report on the events, but WUFT-FM’s Tom Krynski spoke with UF graduate Damien Yare, who is a lawyer in the music industry in the United Kingdom, to get one man’s take on the impact on Londoners.
