"The policing watchdog, in consultation with MI5, will now carry out a review to boost protection of the site, to prevent a “terrorist spectacular”."
The journalist casually mentions:
"An al-Qaeda cell caught plotting to blow up jets in 2006 also had nuclear sites on its hit-list."I would have thought that 'nuclear sites' (presumably meaning nuclear generators as in this case) were rather low on the terrorist hit list, given the preponderance of much softer yet eqaully high profile critical infrastructure targets capable of causing just as much terror and publicity, plus the rather obvious deterrent effect of strong physical security at 'nuclear sites'. But what do I know? I'm no expert at assessing the terrorist threat.
PS On October 19th 2010, eWeek Europe reported that someone left behind in a local hotel an unencrypted USB stick with information about staffing and health & safety at the plant - not especially sensitive, perhaps, but it is another physical security breach.
