London 2012: G4S rowing security 'a shambles'

A manager working for G4S at the Olympic rowing and canoeing venue has told the BBC that security at the site is "a shambles".

The man, who did not want to be named, said radios given to staff at Eton Dorney Lake did not work, and they had to use their own mobiles.

He said there was a shortage of trained CCTV operators for the complex on the Berkshire-Buckinghamshire border.

G4S has been contacted by the BBC for a response but is yet to comment.

Peter Henley reports.
