Home Secretary: G4S 'gave Olympic staff pledge last month'

The Home Secretary says G4S gave assurances it would be able to overcome problems supplying Olympic security staff last month. During a tour of the Olympic Park's security centre Theresa May said:

In early July it was clear that there were some initial problems which G4S said they would resolve. And crucially it was not until July 11 that G4S finally said, 'Actually we can't resolve those initial problems, we won't be able to provide the personnel'... I haven't been at all selective [with the information]. What I've been is absolutely clear with the House of Commons and others about how these things developed.
