Birmingham faces £7.7m Olympic catering shortfall

A shortfall from an Olympic Games catering business could see Birmingham City Council facing a £7.7m budget hole.

Amadeus, part of the NEC group which is primarily owned by the council, ran food stalls at London's Olympic park.

During the games it had problems after running out of key ingredients.

The firm reported an earnings shortfall of £7.7m from the event, money which formed part of Birmingham's expected revenue in the 2012/13 budget.
