G4S embarrassment Continues as two guards protecting Olympic venue are arrested on suspicion of being illegal immigrants

Two G4S security guards who were due to protect footballers during the Olympic Games have been arrested on suspicion of being illegal immigrants.

The men, who are believed to be from Pakistan, had secured jobs with the under-fire firm to work at the City of Coventry stadium, which is due to host 12 matches.

Officers swooped on the venue after their alleged bogus status is said to have been revealed in an accreditation check by G4S, which has been criticised after failing to provide enough staff for the Games.

The firm, which last week admitted it could not meet its contracted target of 10,400 guards despite employing 650,000 people worldwide, then notified the police and UK Border Agency.

The men, who are aged 21 and 24, worked for East Midlands Security and would have been part of the effort to 'lockdown' the venue in a bid to guard it from terror attacks.

Police today confirmed they were working with officials from the UK Border Agency while further checks were made on their immigration status. Read More
