I don't know what the laws are in Britain regarding the protection of classified materials, but I'm pretty sure that this sort of thing is illegal.

A cursory Google search yielded the Cabinet Office's HMG Security Policy Framework.

The best part of all of this is that Labor Party Member and former London Mayor Ken Livingstone went out and told reporters that it would be wrong for such an experienced officer to resign "for holding a piece of paper the wrong way". Look, mistakes will happen, I understand that. But if you can't take the time to put classified information in a freaking folder, you deserve to lose your job.
