London, Oct. 16 (ANI): A personal assistant to Britain's nuclear weapons chief has been told that she has put the national security at risk by being a part of a sex scandal.
Julia Sinclair, 48, is secretary to Rear Admiral Stephen Lloyd, who is in charge of procurement and delivery of nuclear submarines.
According to experts, married mum-of-two Sinclair is at risk of being blackmailed by indulging in sordid orgies.
Her sleazy hobby was revealed when pictures of her at two orgies were circulated among fellow swingers.
Sinclair has high-level security clearance, and access to strategic documents at Abbey Wood Ministry of Defence base near Bristol.
"It's a huge security risk. This is what the Soviets always tried to do to - catch someone in a sensitive post, get them in a sexual situation and take pictures to blackmail them into being a spy," The Sun quoted security expert Chris Dobson, as saying.
Another expert said: "She'll have sensitive details of Trident missiles. She is likely to have access to the Admiral's emails, his diary and details of all personnel in that department. Those details could be used in a terrorist plot."
"Her swinging could have had serious implications. It's a threat to national security."
On being asked about her orgies, Sinclair claimed it was a one-off. She admitted she had not told hubby Paul, adding: "I can't tell my boss." (ANI)
