US military secrets sent to Suffolk factory worker

There is a fascinating story in today's Eastern Daily Press which claims that a Suffolk factory worker has been sent scores of emails containing classified and top secret information by the United States Air Force (USAF).

It appears that the gentleman in question purchased the rights to 'mildenhall.com' a few years ago, but as a result top secret e-mail meant for the giant US air base at RAF Mildenhall are being sent to him on a regular basis.

I'm not sure if this is a worry or whether it is re-assuring to know the US is as bad at looking after it's data as the UK government is.
