Police 'lost' security keys at Olympic venue

LONDON (AP) -- London Police say a set of keys went missing at an Olympic venue last week, but insisted security had not been compromised by the incident.

Metropolitan Police say that officers securing Wembley Stadium, an Olympic venue in west London, reported Tuesday that a set of internal keys used on searches at the venue were missing.

The force said that detectives failed to find the keys, but found no evidence of criminal offenses.

Measures were "taken immediately to secure all key areas of the venue," police said Sunday.

Organizers of the London Olympics stressed that locks have been changed and there was no security breach.

Wembley is one of six stadiums hosting the men's and women's football tournaments during the games.
