Burglers nicked
a handheld computer from a safe house belonging to Britain's domestic spy service, MI5.

Police in the city of Manchester confirmed in a statement that a house had been broken into over the weekend and that an encrypted handheld computer was stolen.

It was the usual thing of burglars entering through an open window.  They could have had no idea that the house was being rented by MI5, the domestic spy service. The theft is the latest in an embarrassing number of security leaks for Blighty’s James Bonds.
