If you are carrying a laptop full of secure information, you are supposed to take good care of it.

You should especially bear in mind that laptops are highly desirable to the criminal fraternity, being both high value and (by design) portable.

The one thing you should not do is take it to what is one of the worst theft blackspots in Western Europe, and expect to be able to keep your hands on it.

But oh no, an MoD official put his down while he checked out of the Adelphi Hotel in Liverpool.
