    Has a D Notice – (a government notice issued to news editors requiring them not to publicize certain information for reasons of national security) – been slapped on the story?

    Surely Anna McKie or somebody at the Brixton Blog should be finding out what happened to this guy? What is his name? Has he recovered? Is he dead?
