This answer is a correction from the original answer.

Since the contract was awarded in 1997, there have been two instances of financial remedies on G4S’s contract at Medway STC, both for failure to comply with procedures. The financial penalties were for a total of £707.40. We are examining whether the allegations made by Panorama would constitute a breach of contract.
