Boris Johnson has been branded a “security risk” as he has been accused of leaving Top Secret government papers lying in his flat.

The Sunday Times reported that Johnson left “highly classified” intelligence documents unattended in his family home “where it could be read by any visitor.”

The newspaper cited two sources who suggested that Dominic Cummings ordered a crack down on the highly sensitive “Strap” intelligence papers to be placed in the Ministerial red box.

It has been reported that Cummings stepped in after he found the intelligence papers lying around at one of the Prime Minister’s properties.

Nick Timothy who was Theresa May’s chief adviser said Strap papers are identifiable as they are printed in pink.

Timothy tweeted, “For those making light of STRAP material, it’s classified that way because it often depends on covert human intelligence sources’ he tweeted.

“Which means if you’re indiscreet with the information, you’re putting the source’s life in danger.”

A third source told The Sunday Times that Johnson’s red box which contains highly sensitive papers would regularly be left outside his door of this flat on Saturday’s.

The official said, “It would be there in the morning and often still there in the evening.

“He wouldn’t have touched it.”

The highly respected former Home Secretary David Blunkett has suggested Johnson could be a “security risk.”

Blunkett said to LBC he would be “very surprised” if MI5, the security service were not already investigating the accusations.
