The security of police data - sketchy in Lothians and Borders at best!

Yes, folks! Roll up! Want some Lothians and Borders crime files - just pop along to your nearest car boot sale. The police, speaking though a spokesperson, attempt to deny responsibility saying they use a specialised firm to dispose of sensitive information. Doh! Once again, the dead hand of bureaucracy seems to think this kind of nonsense will fool anyone - it is quite obvious that whatever contract they have with the so-called specialised entity they use is not worth the paper it is written on and needs to be looked at fast!

The same article reports that last month weapons and crime evidence were found dumped in a skip in Peebles. Get you act together Lothians and Borders police!
