Eyes on London
Britain’s military has started pulling back personnel from the Olympics park. They have decided on this after a private security contractor made good on its numbers. G4S failed to provide some 10,000 workers it was contracted for, but it is now sending more than 7,000 workers to Olympics venues each day. G4S spokesman Adam Mynott told AP: “It’s gone as well as it could given our revised position.” The Ministry of Defense says because of the development, some military personnel have been put on standby.
