Olympic security stepped up at Stansted

Essex Police are preparing to increase security at Stansted Airport ahead of the Olympic games.

Senior officers say they're determined to stop anyone causing a threat to either the games themselves or the airport.

Officers will be on a high state of alert before, during and after the Olympics.

"The joint message to would-be troublemakers or those intent on posing a security threat to the airport or the Games is stark and clear: Don't try it as you will be caught."
