Never heard of a briefcase??

Full of his own importance, probably trying to show how busy he was.

Beggars belief that such a senior officer would carry open documentation like that - 'accident prone' is the least I would say about him!

peter99co has it right.

Quite deliberate to show how important he was.

Another expenses cut - I expect the amount of red tape to claim a briefcase from the Met Police is so high he preferred to do some work rather than fill in several forms and have an army of cost-cutters moaning about his expenses.

or a simple manilla folder, I've got a stationary cupboard full if the Met has run out...

He has resigned, only option open to him

He made the blunder, fell on his sword, deserves credit for resigning and not trying to 'bluff it out' as some politicians might have done.

You know something - it almost looked as if he was holding that document deliberatly so that it could be seen.

As newman35 has said a least he has shown some honour in going, without the kicking and sceaming that some do.

It always amazes me how little common sense a lot of senior brainy type people have.

It seems that the journalists/press or whatever they are called have come out of this with a better reputation. At last!
