<b>Thursday 2 October: </b> Classified info declassifies, gloating butler caught out and City in Europe

Published on October 2nd 2008.

IT'S HAPPENED again. Another classified piece of electronic data has been stolen. The MI5 palmtop device was taken after a house burglary in Greater Manchester. Fortunately the data inside was encrypted so the likelihood of anybody being to able to crack the code and read the data is low. There is general concern about the level of loss of official hardware. The Ministry of Defence has admitted the improbable number of 658 of its laptops being stolen over the past four years.

A FORMER Queen's butler has been exposed as a child sex offender. Paul Kidd got hoisted with his own petard when he boasted about his job in a feature in the Manchester Evening News. A man abused by Kidd recognised him and reported his abuse to the police who found thousand of indecent images stored in Kidd's home. Other victims have come forward who met Kidd through church.

A MAN HAS been charged with threats to kill and false imprisonment after two paramedics were in Oldham. Police were called to the Coldhurst area of the town on Tuesday after the victims were threatened at knifepoint. A 44-year-old man is due to appear at Manchester Crown Court on 9 October.

MANCHESTER CITY have the opportunity to prove their new found riches are based on solid foundations when they take on AC Omonia this evening at Eastlands. Leading 2-1 from the first leg, a victory would see them qualify for the group stages of the UEFA CUP.
