A derelict street of former Royal Air Force personnel housing is seen at RAF Uxbridge in north London April 27, 2012. Completely shut down since 2010, the huge old military base housed 2,000 athletes during the 1948 Olympics, in tandem with sites at Richmond Park and student accommodation in Willesden in west London. For the 2012 Olympics, there will be a bespoke athletes village at the Olympic Park site. Picture taken April 27, 2012.
