 The "stress test" report into weaknesses at the Hartlepool nuclear power plant was illicitly downloaded on to a USB memory stick and then mislaid while the official was at a nuclear conference in India.

  It contained sensitive technical details and maps of the power station.

Shadow energy and climate change secretary Caroline Flint said: "The safety of the UK's nuclear industry is of paramount importance. It is extremely disturbing that sensitive information about a UK nuclear power station has been lost overseas. I will be urgently writing to the Energy Secretary to get answers."
