I believe the link was to the 6-year-old news release, not to the files themselves.

But the link would not go anywhere. Unavailable - 'this site could not be reached'.

If it was a press release, the link would have been taken down after a short while. Very few links last forever. Doing a web search for "MI5 historical files" will provide you with many active links.
