Ministry of Defence offices on Horse Guards Avenue in Westminster, London

A laptop containing the personal details of Ministry of Defence employees has been stolen from a motorway service station.

The laptop was taken from the car of an MoD contractor, who was parked in Strensham Services on the M5 near Worcester.

The contractor, Kuehne and Nagel, has been awarded a huge contract to revamp the MoD's supply chain for food and fuel.

They're part of a £90m contract to build a 'fulfilment centre' next to the MoD's Donnington base, and a £40m contract for IT services.

An MoD employee told the Shropshire Star: "We were told that our personal details were on the stolen laptop, including our bank details.

"Given the importance of security here, you would think the company who had won this huge MoD contract would have better security procedures than this."

The contractor confirmed the laptop had been stolen, and said they'd offered affected employees a free 12 month subscription to credit check company Experian's service, so they can keep an eye out for identity fraud.

A spokesperson said: "Kuehne and Nagel regret this potential breach of personal security which was caused by the laptop being temporarily unattended in the locked boot of an employee’s car.

“The police have been informed and we are co-operating with their efforts to trace the missing laptop. The MoD has informed affected employees and advised of actions they can take to prevent their data from being misused."

An MoD spokesperson said: "We take the protection of our people, including their personal data, extremely seriously and although the data will be difficult to access given the encryption protection, we have informed our employees and are working to support them."

“There is an ongoing civilian police investigation into this matter, so it would be inappropriate for us to comment further at this time."
