Extract from G4S' statement regarding Olympic security staff numbers:
“There was a large increase in the numbers of staff requested by Locog, up from an original 2,000 in December 2010 up to five times that number just six months ago, and that has been extremely challenging, and we have encountered some delays in progressing applicants through the final stages
“We have been devoting more resources and working flat out to process these as swiftly as possible, and we are now in the position where we have over 4,000 people deployed now at a 100 venues, and more than 9,000 going through the final stages of training, vetting and accreditation.
“Applicants who are in the process already and may want to check on the progress of their application can contact our call centre now, and hopefully they should be able to get through.”
