Key claims made by Olympic staff about 'security breaches'

Some staff who have worked on the operation told ITV News anonymously they have witnessed security breaches by G4S staff already working at Olympic venues.

Among the key claims they make are:

  • Cargo areas of lorries and contractors vans have not been adequately searched by either dogs, scanners or other security teams.
  • In some instances dogs which were not trained to find explosives were used to carry out fake searches of vehicles
  • Some assessments of dogs and handlers have been faked
