An investigation has begun into how the weapon and secure portable radio system went missing during a 42 Engineer Regiment training weekend on Dartmoor, Devon, England.

The equipment belonged to the Oxfordshire-based regiment went missing in the early hours of Sunday at Homing Beam, a regular military training area. A spokesman for the MoD could not confirm reports that the weapon was taken after a soldier fell asleep.
The spokesman said that the radio had been disabled, was unable to intercept military communications and should be rendered useless when it runs out of power.
He said: “A military police investigation is under way due to a missing rifle and radio set.”
The spokesman said the gun was not loaded and investigators were taking the incident seriously.
