West Midlands Police officer admits Official Secrets Act charge

Assistant Chief Constable Marcus Beale pleaded guilty to an offence under the Official Secrets Act after the documents were stolen from an unmarked police vehicle in May.

West Midlands Police's former counter terrorism chief has admitted to failing to protect "sensitive documents" after files relating to policing matters were stolen from his vehicle.

Beale, 54, who has been suspended from duty, appeared at Westminster magistrates court on Thursday, where he pleaded guilty to the charge of failing to safeguard information under the Official Secrets Act.

'There is no evidence of in fact what happened to that briefcase, it may be it was an ordinary thief after your iPod who thought there was money in the briefcase but we will never know, it has just disappeared.

A senior police officer has admitted failing to safeguard confidential documents that were taken from his vehicle.
