Northumbria Police and G4S insist that security for the Queen's visit to Tyne and Wear will not be affected by staff shortages.
Her Majesty is visiting the region as part of the Diamond Jubilee celebration on Wednesday July 18.
As part of her visit, G4S has been contracted to provide staff for perimeter security.
G4S bosses have confirmed that the countrywide shortfall the company is experiencing will not affect the Queen’s visit.
A spokesman said: “We have been asked to provide in the region of 30 staff for Wednesday and that is what we will be providing.”
A spokesperson for Northumbria Police confirmed that G4S is providing staff as additional security for the Queen’s visit.
Around 3,500 extra troops are being drafted in at the last minute to make up the shortfall in G4S provision for the London 2012 Games.
The company, which is the world's biggest private security firm, is now facing a loss of between £35m and £50m for its failure to meet its contractual obligations for the Olympics.
