Police are investigating the eBay auction of a digital camera said to 
have contained MI6 images of terror suspects.

Suspects' faces, names and fingerprints, as well as snaps of rocket 
launchers and missiles, were discovered by an online bidder who bought 
the camera for £17, it was reported.

The 28-year-old only found the images when he downloaded his own recent 
holiday snaps from the Nikon CoolPix.

He told police and was shocked when Special Branch officers arrived at 
his home in Hemel Hempstead, Herts, days later to seize the camera.

Officers are said to have made five visits to his home in the last week 
to quiz him and his family.
