Tony Blair bodyguard left gun in Starbucks when she went to the toilet

A female police firearms officer left a gun in a coffee shop where it was discovered by a member of the public, Scotland Yard said today.
The pistol was reportedly left in the toilets of a central London branch of Starbucks by a police bodyguard who was once Tony Blair's close protection officer.
The gun, a semi-automatic Glock 17, was left on the floor of the café's only toilet for 20 minutes.
The gun belonged to a high-flying female officer in her 30s.

She took off the belt holding the firearm when she used the toilet and then bought a coffee, forgetting she had left the gun behind.
The police source told The Sun: 'Luckily it was found in time, but if a child or a criminal had picked it up there could have been terrible consequences.

'This has come as a shock. The officer is inconsolable and seriously regrets her mistake.'
The source added: 'Everyone is fond of her.
'She was among the top in her class during training, but her firearms career could be over.'
The pistol was eventually linked to her when police compared its serial number to those logged at a police armoury.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: 'A police-issue firearm was left unattended in a central London café on August 29 and was found by a member of the public.
'The weapon belongs to a Metropolitan Police authorised firearms officer who was on duty at the time.'
It is understood the gun was left in the coffee shop by mistake.
An investigation is being carried out by Scotland Yard's Directorate of Professional Standards.
