London 'needs security assistance for 2012'
Published: Wednesday 11th of March 2009
An influential group of peers has called on the EU and Nato to provide security at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Lord Jopling, chairman of the EU committee, is surprised such measures are not already in place and urges the government to act fast.
"We hope Nato's 60th anniversary summit next month will be an opportunity to remedy this," he continues.
The peer adds that the government need to take "every possible step to ensure other EU member states are fully prepared to assist the UK" when it hosts the games in three years' time.
Earlier this month, Rebecca Adlington made calls for officials to keep the 800 metres freestyle race for the 2012 Olympics, an event which she won in Beijing last year.
