Olympic failure firm G45 wins deal

Have your say

Security firm G4S has been awarded its first Government contract since the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics security fiasco to continue running a centre for young offenders.

G4S Care and Justice Services will continue to provide services at Medway Secure Training Centre in Kent for a further two years after securing a contract extension. The announcement comes after the firm revealed a £70 million hit on its Olympics contract for failing to provide all of its 10,400 guards.

Two G4S directors resigned in the wake of a review into the company’s botched Olympics contract, when the group only fulfilled 83 per cent of contracted shifts.
