We didn’t have security training

Steve Crawshaw looks back on the early days of The Independent and remembers a completely different attitude towards security than in the later years of the paper. There hadn’t been a major war for some time, and the approach towards conflict was largely improvisational before a spate of wars in the 1990s and new technology resulted in more structured protocols.
