The man, who was involved in training employees for the company, alleges that because of the pressure to recruit staff corners have been cut and some
of the staff are not up to the job.
The employee, whose identity Sky News is not revealing, said there is a "no fail" policy for security staff and all recruits passed the course
regardless of how competent they were.
Staff members - who had received two days of intensive training operating X-ray machines to detect lethal weapons and explosives - failed to spot
decommissioned hand-grenades and firearms during a test.
Security officers asked to pat down a volunteer with a deactivated 9mm pistol in his sock failed to find the weapon.
Another guard picked up a fake improvised explosive device (IED) put through an X-ray scanner as a test and waved it around, despite being trained
never to touch suspected bombs.
A trainee, who failed to keep track of which personal items belonged to whom, enabled a volunteer to put a mock bomb through the X-ray machine then
disappear into the crowd.
All these members of staff were later passed as having successfully completed training. They were told to collect their security badge and uniform and
were cleared to work in the Olympic park.
This is really scary, just today (or yesterday) Theresa May had to bring in another 3,500 military personnel to cover the games because G4S said they
might not have enough security or training to cover the games. This whistle blower has xtensive military and professional security training and is an
expert in weapons and IED detection, and has said there is a 50/50 chance a bomb could get smuggled in. This company, G4S, has had plenty of time to
train its staff and have failed, who is going to pay? Peoples lives. The Olympics is going to be watched by over a billion people, what a stage for a
terrorist attack, this bit of news is only gong to encourage them.
Ive never seen so much security being put up, surface to air missiles on London rooftops, huge military present on the streets and on water, do they
really think something will happen or are they just being safe, this bit of news hasn't convinced me in anyway!
