It seems that the much used Olympics contingency fund will have to be raided again, this time to cover previously undeclared maintenance and security costs (estimated at between £150M-£230M).
The £2.7BN fund has already been depleted by £1.3BN.
The raid on the contingency fund can only be made after approval from a committee of senior ministers, including the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
They need to ask why these costs were not identified before, when the "budget" was being prepared.
