The boss of security giant G4S is to stand down - just months after he came under fire for his company's botched handling of its Olympics Games contract.

Chief executive Nick Buckles, who was paid a total of £1.2 million in 2012, was instrumental in creating the G4S business through the merger of Securicor and the security businesses of Group 4 Falck in 2004.
