G4S should 'return management fee', say MPs

G4S should forego its £57m management fee after failing to supply the required number of Olympics security staff, a committee of MPs has said.

It should also compensate people who were accredited for Olympics work with the firm but not given any shifts, the Home Affairs Committee argued in a report on Olympics security.

The Armed Forces had to step in at the last minute, when G4S said it couldn't meet its targets.

G4S is arguing that the fee was used to pay wages and other costs, and was not a profit.

Gordon Correra reports.
