EDINBURGH (Reuters) - Serco’s Chief Executive Rupert Soames said on Thursday the company was “watchful” to see whether there were any opportunities arising from rivals’ distress in UK outsourcing.

“We are distinctly on what you could call rubble-watch in the UK, because that Carillion deal has worked well for us,” Soames said, referring to the work that Serco picked up as a result of Carillion’s collapse just over a year ago.
