Security scandal at the Olympic stadium
The operation was meant to stop terrorists smuggling a bomb into the site in a vehicle and setting it to detonate on a long-term timer but security firm G4S "ghosted" the searches of traffic entering the park in Stratford, East London, for THREE YEARS.
Names of dog handlers on days off were allegedly put down on shift rotas so it looked like they were working. But NO searches actually took place.
The alleged deception may have been carried out to avoid a £500 fine imposed by Olympic organisers Locog for every shift G4S could not cover, reports The Sun.
