2012 Olympics emergency plans hindered

14th October 2010

Concerns have been raised over emergency planning for London’s 2012 Olympics amid core funding cuts to all emergency and health services in the capital.

A London Assembly report has stated: “Funding for all of London's emergency and health services is one key unknown variable which may have an impact on their preparedness for the Games and ability to provide business as usual services.”

Police and fire services have also raised concerns that they would be stretched to meet the additional demands of staging the Games.
