    Private security group G4S has come under scrutiny for its Olympics security readiness.

    British Home Secretary Theresa May was "under pressure" to explain whether she could have averted the Olympics security fiasco after it was revealed that the Home Office "was warned 10 months ago that there were problems with the ability of [contractor] G4S to provide security for the Games," according to Merrick, Chorley, Leftly & Brady of the London INDEPENDENT. A confidential report was presented to Home Office ministers in September, which "should have raised alarm bells about the readiness of G4S." It is not known whether the Home Secretary personally saw the report or whether it "only went across the desk" of May's junior minister, James Brokenshire.
