UK armed forces lose loads of laptops

The British Ministry Of Defence has admitted that it has now lost 659 laptops and 121 memory sticks, some of which contained Top Secret data.

The latest theft, from a hotel in Liverpool, added to the previous total just one day after the embarrassing admission was made when a question about the scale of losses and thefts was tabled in parliament. The latest theft concerns a laptop containing “sensitive information” which has been stolen while an official checked out of the Britannia Adelphi Hotel in Liverpool city centre.

Originally, the MoD had confessed that 347 of its laptops were where they shouldn’t be, but ‘anomalies in the accounting process’ forced a recount and the figure was nearly doubled, that’s quite an anomaly. The figures cover the years between 2004 and 2007.
