Calls for G4S to face criminal charges

A BBC investigation has learned that security company G4S was sent warnings not to employ an armed guard in Iraq just days before he murdered two colleagues.

Private security contractor Paul McGuigan, from Peebles, was shot dead by Danny Fitzsimons in Baghdad in August 2009.

As Samantha Poling reports, there have been calls for G4S to face criminal charges amid growing concern within the armed private security industry over the way it is regulated.
