A source said: “Police are desperate to pinpoint which computer was used . The fear is that anyone who wants to steal the information may mount a cyber attack and take downloads or copies.
“Officials are desperate to close the loop and make sure this information cannot be accessed in future.”
We told how the USB drive held 2.5Gb of data in 76 folders containing 174 documents, maps and images . It detailed the route the Queen takes to the airport. There were timetables for security patrols, ID needed for restricted areas and operating manuals for the airport s Doppler radar surveillance system.

The man who found the USB stick has been helping detectives. He told us how he found it in the street and added: The next time I went to the library I thought I would take a look to see if I could work out who it belonged to.
“Then my jaw hit the floor .
I couldn t believe it . There were drawings, manuals, maps . It was terrifying. A spokesman for Heathrow said: An independent review into data management processes is under way.
Our priority is the safety and security of our passengers and colleagues . The UK and Heathrow have some of the most robust aviation security measures in the world and we remain vigilant to evolving threats by updating procedures on a daily basis.
We have reviewed security and are confident Heathrow remains secure.

A Pakistani policeman stands guard outside the Gaddafi Cricket Stadium
Sri Lanka’s cricket team arrived in Lahore under heavy security Sunday to play the final Twenty20 of a three-match series, eight years after they were attacked by gunmen there. The team and their officials were taken to a five-star hotel in a bomb-proof bus with hundreds of security guards on the roads and at the resort. International cricket was suspended in Pakistan after the 2009 gun attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore, which left eight people killed and seven visiting players and their staff members injured.

Sri Lanka – the first major team to visit the country since the incident – will play a Twenty20 match on Sunday evening before flying back to Colombo via Dubai. Several Sri Lankan players and officials, including survivors who came under gunfire in 2009 and their head coach, had opted out of the Twenty20 fixture after some voiced concern about security.

Sri Lanka played two Tests, five one-day internationals and the first two Twenty20 matches of the series in the United Arab Emirates, Pakistan’s neutral venue since 2009. In the last eight years Pakistan have only hosted minnows Zimbabwe in 2015, the final of Pakistan Super League and a three-match Twenty20 series against a World XI — comprised of players from seven countries — earlier this year. Sri Lankan all-rounder Thisara Perera, appointed captain of the new-look team, said it was great to be back. “It’s nice to be in Pakistan again,” said Perera, who was part of the World XI last month. “We are thankful for a warm welcome and will do our best to entertain the crowd with some good cricket.”

Sri Lanka’s sports minister Dayasiri Jayasekera and Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) President Thilanga Sumathipala are also on the tour while a two-member security delegation is in Lahore for the last two days to oversee security arrangements.
“We are thankful to the Sri Lankan team for coming to Pakistan and I request the fans to support both the teams during the match,” said Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed, whose team also arrived from Dubai early Sunday.

Heavy security with air surveillance will be in place during the match with fans having to go through various check points and body searches.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) hopes a safe tour by Sri Lanka will help them convince the West Indies to visit for three Twenty20 internationals next month.
“It’s a historic moment,” PCB chairman Najam Sethi told AFP on Friday. “With improved security we hope fully-fledged international cricket will return to Pakistan in the next two years.”
