Public Safety Given False Hope After G4S Tag Artificial Limb

Private security firm G4S has sacked two members of staff after they¬† tagged a man’s false leg allowing him to break a court-imposed curfew.

The two G4S taggers were fooled by Christopher Lowcock, 29, who wrapped the artificial limb with a bandage when they came to his Rochdale home to set-up the tag.
Lowcock was then able to remove the limb and break the curfew imposed on him for offences involving drugs, a weapon and driving.

G4S sacked the pair for committing a serious disciplinary offence, it said.

This only cam e to light when suspicions were raised after Lowcock was sent back to prison accused of a driving related office.

An MoJ spokesman said “Cases like this are very rare and on this occasion procedures were not followed”
