Locks changed — after coppers lose the keys to Wembley Stadium

The locks at London’s Olympic football final venue Wembley Stadium have had to be changed, after police responsible for security at the world-famous sports arena lost their keys…

Scotland Yard sent a team of detectives to the site to search for the missing set, but despite determining that they had not been stolen, officers were unable to find them.

As a result, Olympic Games organizers and embarrassed police chiefs decided that all internal locks inside the 90,000-seat stadium would have to be replaced…

Police insist – “There is absolutely no security concern in relation to the stadium, as measures were taken immediately to secure all key areas of the venue,” the Metropolitan Police said in a statement.

The cost of replacing all the high-tech laser keys used at Wembley is expected to run into tens of thousands of dollars.

Har.

They sent out the higher-paid version of the lads who lost the keys — to find the keys, eh?
