Poor old Hazel Blears only wanted to do some work away from the office so she downloaded some sensitive government data to her laptop. She then took said laptop to her constituency office. She left it in the office overnight. Her constituency office isn't in a leafy suburban area - it's in The Crescent, Salford.

So let's walk this through:
  1. Downloads stuff, probably against the rules on handling sensitive data
  2. Takes the data outside her parliamentary office
  3. Leaves laptop unattended
  4. Overnight
  5. In Salford
This woman is a Secretary for State, she is making decisions which affect us every day.
