Sky sports views! Stunning images of London's iconic sporting venues captured from police helicopters

From the majesty of the Olympic Stadium to the charms of Wimbledon's All England Lawn Tennis Club, London is dotted with some of the world's top sporting venues.
Now sports - and architecture fans - are able to enjoy a bird's eye view of their favourite stadia and venues from an unlikely source.

In between travelling to jobs, helicopters from the Metropolitan Police Service's Air Support Unit capture images of the capital via an iPhone and post them to social media sites Twitter and Instagram.
The accounts have become a huge success with more than 75,000 followers 'liking' and 'retweeting' images posted from London's skies.

The home of Surrey County Cricket Club and scene of many memorable moments for England is found in Kennington, south London.
