Locog insist that the extra 10,000 tickets put on sale every day for the Paralympic Games have been sold within minutes.

London 2012 organisers have revealed that tickets for the Paralympic Games have been in high demand.

There were questions over the popularity of the Paralympics following the huge success of the Olympic Games earlier this summer.

Despite early doubts, Locog have claimed that the 10,000 extra tickets that have been put on sale every day have been "snapped up" within minutes.

A Locog spokesman told BBC Sport: "The whole of the UK has taken the Games to its heart. As soon as tickets have been released, they have been snapped up."

Meanwhile, Channel 4, who are the official broadcaster of the Paralympics, have insisted that they will clear more schedule time due to the increase in TV audiences.
