Reporter’s security test falls foul of… security

Security seems to be up to scratch at the 2012 London Olympic Park after an ITV News reporter was arrested, trying to break in to the park to… test security.

Chris Rogers, the former Sky News and Newsround presenter was testing security measures on the park’s building site, using a fake Lithuanian passport as ID.

However, Rogers’s dodgy document was detected and he was arrested.

He has been released on police bail, with no further action likely to be taken.
