Ter­ror risk to MOD sites

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - UK WORLD TODAY -

THE se­cu­rity of the UK’S nu­clear arse­nal and other key mil­i­tary as­sets are at “sig­nif­i­cant risk” amid a staffing short­fall in the Min­istry of De­fence Po­lice.

Chair­man of the De­fence Po­lice Fed­er­a­tion (DPF) Ea­mon Keat­ing was due to say that cuts that have seen the work­force shrink by more than 30%.

Mr Keat­ing will say: “The con­se­quences of a suc­cess­ful at­tack on an MOD site within the UK hardly bears con­tem­pla­tion.”
