G4S offers to pay government £24m for tag overcharging

Security firm G4S has offered to pay back £24.1m after admitting the way it billed the UK government for tagging offenders was "not appropriate".

But G4S insisted its own review into the matter had found no evidence of dishonesty or criminal conduct.

It comes after an audit suggested the firm had been charging to tag criminals who were either dead or in jail.
