Terrorists WILL hit the West and UK would not be able to safeguard another Olympics, warns former MI6 chief Sir John Sawers

The former head of M16 has warned that it is just a matter of time before terrorists hit the West and claimed Britain would no longer be able to safeguard another massive event like the Olympics.

Sir John Sawers stepped down last year after five years as chief of the UK Secret Intelligence Service, MI6, a post known as ā€˜Cā€™ in the service.

He was the first MI6 chief to be chosen from outside the service for 41 years and oversaw the security arrangements for the Olympic Games in 2012.
