Terror-attack documents found in a ditch

A sensitive dossier featuring details of the Government's response to a major terrorist attack has been found in a roadside ditch, it was revealed.

The 46-page Ministry of Defence file was discovered in a gym bag and handed to the Sun newspaper by a member of the public.

The bag - also containing an MoD security pass - had apparently been stolen from a Major's car while he was shopping at a Sainsbury's store in the Home Counties.
