Up to 13,500 military personnel will help to provide security at the London 2012 Olympic Games, the Ministry of Defence has announced.

The Defence Secretary Philip Hammond said security would remain police-led but the armed forces would make a “significant contribution”.

Some 5,000 troops will support the police, while up to 7,500 will provide venue security at peak times, he said.

Last week, ministers revised the Games security budget from £282m to £553m.
