With all eyes on the Opening ceremony last night, Cut The Cap were lucky enough to see how the Olympics impacted on the local east London Community in a positive way.
Newham Live is a festival that runs during the Olympic Games at West Ham Park which is located minutes from the Olympic stadium.
They are running a series of events from music to dancers, as well as hosting a massive screen to show all the games.
Check out some of the pictures below, including some amazing street dancers, great food and police escorting a youth out the park (it is East London)
