An EMERGENCY investigation was launched after the Government of Wales leaked to the public with plans for the death of the Queen.
Letters and a security pamphlet labeled “officially sensitive” were mistakenly emailed to a member of the public by a Welsh government official.
The leak included a letter from a senior civil servant in the United Kingdom expressing concern that the newspaper’s website had revealed confidential details about the procedures for the Queen’s death.
Security instructions were also mistakenly emailed to a member of the public.
The Welsh government is investigating a “potential security breach”, but says the leak did not reveal “operational information”.
The BBC reported that the correspondence referred to the procedures for the death of the monarch.
A senior Welsh government official, Dr Andrew Goodall, said in a statement: “Although the e-mail did not contain any operational information, it was marked as‘ officially sensitive ’and should not have been shared.
“We take the issue of information and data security very seriously and this is now being investigated as a potential security breach.
“We can’t comment further.”
