Yet more, this time from the Daily Telegraph

Three days after the death of Dr David Kelly something curious was going on in the offices of the Ministry of Defence.

On the evening of Sunday July 20, MoD police were alerted to an incident in the ministry’s Metropole Buildings, off Whitehall.

The official line is that a “burn bag”, used for the disposal of classified and sensitive information, had been discovered unattended outside an office. The MoD police did not consider it a matter for them, and it ended there.

*However, unofficial sources have told The Telegraph that something more was going on – that the MoD police had been called by a security guard after a “senior official” was discovered hurriedly shredding material.

So, this was all the BBC’s fault, hmmm?
