Breaking news; top secret papers left on a train

. The BBC is running a quite extraordinary story. It is saying that top-secret documents containing the latest government intelligence assessment on al-Qaeda have been left on a train in London. It was given the documents by a passenger on the train from Waterloo to Surrey who spotted the orange cardboard envelope lying abandoned on a seat.

Documents included a 'damming' assesment of Iraq's security services and were so sensitive they were all numbered and marked 'UK Top Secret'and 'for UK/US/Canadian and Australian eyes only'. Bear in mind this is the government that 315 MP's have just entrusted with the power to detain people without charge for 42 days.....
