A rare World War Two book documenting the ingenious James Bond-style gadgets invented by British intelligence to help prisoners of war escape has been discovered.

The 1942 classified catalogue contains the top secret designs for the covert equipment that includes tiny compasses concealed in gold teeth and coat buttons.

Many of the inventions were the brainchild of Christopher Hutton - a real-life ‘Q’ - who worked for the government’s little-known MI9 agency.
