Documents containing 62 locations of a possible terrorist attack on Heathrow airport and counter attack plans may have been stolen and left in a layby near the airport in London. Currently the police are investigating the incident.
 



BBc
A report in the Sun newspaper claims the papers identify 62 sites from which a missile strike could be made.

A motorist contacted its journalists after he found them in a layby near the airport, said the Sun.

The Metropolitan Police said it had launched an internal inquiry but would not discuss the documents' contents.

This is not good,

the amount of info in them papers is shocking,

I cant believe these can just be lost then found on a road somewhere!!!

surely there really need to protect this kind of infomation,

There is so much a terroist could use,

I was also quite worried about the building site that is going to be the new terminal 5, causal workers have ascess to this all the time,

thats a security rick all by its self,




They also included confidential details of police measures such as patrol times, use of dog units and deployment of rooftop snipers.

The newspaper said the dossier, dated June 26, 2004, gave surveillance and assessment information, valid until December.


Also another concern is that the terroists may now know points of weakness around the airport,

they also say that the dossior reads more like a terror manul rather than a terror plan,

looks like they have some major changes to make,

I saw this but at the time it was only announced at a tabloid website so i didn't post it. Here is the link.

www.thesun.co.uk...

My first impression was that if the info was true then it could be possible this was an inside job. Perhaps there are sleeper cells working in some government jobs, or some terrorist cells are bribing government employees. It could also just have been a misplacement.....

I don't think anyone would misplace two files by a roadside close to a gas station and a few hundred yards from terminal 4. But, who knows these days, maybe some knucklehead did misplace the documents, but it is very strange and disturbing indeed.

This is my exact thoughts, i would have thought these kind of papers would be well guarded...
And surly they should know who was looking after them,

Home Secretary David Blunkett told the BBC Radio 4 Today programme: "As far as I know this is a genuine document."

He added: "The plans were obviously very good. Somebody disposing of them in a way that allowed that to happen is very bad .

David Blunkett was live on that radio station today talking about it ive not had chance to listen to it but it also reminds me of the time when an MI-5 lap top was stolen I think these documents could be the real deal. I'm wondering how long it will be beofre tanks and army are back on watch at the airports again. There is an news feed on the top right hand side on the bbc link in the main story

Good post 7 and for the good replies too

Its a frightining prospect. 62 places of a possible place we could be hit with a missile. wonder if they have came to terrorist hands and be dumped back there?

I see from Asala's quote that the source is valid up until december. plenty time to do something if they know the weeknesses etc (depending if it did fall into terrorist hands)

its a real bad error this though, i read somewhere else on here 2nite that bush is saying the world is a safer place. surely incidents like this make you ponder? its a bad mistake i think. papers like this should be carefully stored away
