Planning documents for papal trip recovered; police say no security breach

Catholic World News - September 06, 2010

British police have admitted that some confidential plans for the state visit by Pope Benedict XVI were recovered—apparently after having been accidentally left in a pub. However the police say that security for the papal visit has not been compromised.

The documents that were turned in to police were from an early stage of planning from the papal visit, informed sources say. It was not clear how the papers became lost. Several different government agencies have been involved in planning for the papal events, and a number of officials had access to the confidential documents.
