    MI6 photos "sold on Ebay"

    A camera sold on Ebay contained photos and confidential records of MI6 terror suspects, according to newspaper reports.

    Photographs, fingerprints and confidential documents relating to suspected Al-Qaeda terrorists were allegedly found in the memory of the second-hand Nikon Coolpix camera, which was bought on the auction site for only £17.

    The confidential files were discovered after the buyer downloaded his holiday photos. He immediately reported the files to the police, who initially treated it as a joke, according to a report in The Sun.

    However, the police subsequently descended on the man's home, seizing his computer and camera equipment.

    A spokesman for Hertfordshire Police told the newspaper: "We can confirm we seized a camera after a member of the public reported it. Intelligence officers are investigating."

    The police have reportedly replaced the seized equipment, at a cost of £1,000.
