Confidential documents associated with the chemical laboratory of the British Ministry of defence in Porton Down found in a dumpster in London. Reported by the Daily Star.
Thousands of pages found in the dumpster for paper debris in the Parking lot in the Northern part of the city. As noted, the first information about the secret document appeared in the newspaper last week. To date the defense Ministry has already started investigation of the incident.
The documents cover the period 1980-ies by 2017. They contain data about the equipment of the guards of the object and details about the responsibilities of police officers patrolling the perimeter. In addition, we managed to discover including the home address of one of the guards and recorded the plain text password to computer systems.
One of the experts on the intelligence called the finding a “dream terrorist”: the documents found in the place where homeless people often seek out things that can still be sold. A former policeman who worked with Porton Down indicated that the situation could end disastrously. “Someone somewhere didn’t do their job,” he added.
Daily Star writes that the lab is one of the most secret in the world. Previously, she performed research on the chemical weapons, and later switched to “the development of effective countermeasures” against foreign attacks on British targets. In it, in particular, have samples of the Ebola virus and toxic gas sarin.
The laboratory has played an important role in identifying substances that, according to London, was poisoned by a former GRU officer Sergei Skripal. In Porton Down said that the former spy had been attacked with nerve agents of the Novice class, developed in the USSR. The OPCW later could not confirm the origin of the toxin.
