Games security 'not compromised', says Lord Coe

Help

Security for the Olympics has not been compromised by the failure of G4S to recruit enough security staff, London 2012 chairman Lord Coe has said.

It emerged last Wednesday that 3,500 troops were being drafted in to plug gaps.

G4S has said it stands to lose up to £50m on the contract, worth a total of about £280m.
