Police in charge of keeping the Olympics safe have lost the keys to Wembley Stadium.

Scotland Yard admitted last night that it was to blame for the shocking breach.Search teams spent days desperately hunting for the keys after they were mislaid during the final preparations for the Games.

Sources said it would cost up to £40,000 to replace the hi-tech laser keys. The latest fiasco threatened to further damage already fragile confidence in security arrangements for the Games.
It also provoked a furious behind-the-scenes row between the police, Locog and private security firm G4S over who was responsible.
