Speaking in the Commons today, Yvette Cooper shared a memory of Tessa Jowell’s plans to distribute condoms at the London 2012 Olympics.

The Labour MP said: “As she said to us, there’s going to be all these athletes with their beautiful bodies and when they’ve finished their races, they’re going to have a lot of sex. And we have a responsibility to keep them safe.”

“She was completely down to earth, completely practical, had no qualms, no squeamishness, about all aspects of peoples’ lives,” Cooper added.
