Staffordshire man bailed over TalkTalk cyber attack

A 20-year old man from Staffordshire arrested in connection with a cyber attack on telecoms company TalkTalk has been released on bail.

Scotland Yard said he's been bailed to attend a police station in March next year, pending further inquiries.

The man who was detained at an address in Staffordshire on Saturday, was being held on suspicion of offences under the Computer Misuse Act. He's the third person to be questioned over the alleged data theft. Two teenagers have previously been arrested over the cyber attack.

The Metropolitan Police's cyber crime unit, the Police Service of Northern Ireland's cyber crime centre and the National Crime Agency are all carrying out the investigation.


Report: Lichfield whale trip victim was "vibrant, outgoing and lovely"

The family of a woman from Lichfield who died on a whale-watching trip in Canada say she was "vibrant, outgoing and lovely". Katie Taylor was one of five Britons who lost their lives when the boat capsized at the weekend.

Investigators believe the vessel overturned because passengers were all on the left side of the boat when a large wave hit. Stacey Foster reports.

The British Columbia Coroner says the preliminary investigation into a whale-watching boat sinking suggests that the five British people killed were not wearing life jackets and were on the top deck of the vessel.

All five "died at the scene", a spokesperson for the Coroner's office said.

Passengers on boats of the size involved in the accident aren't required by law to wear them, the coroner also said.

Canadian police and the Transportation Safety Board are still investigating the accident, which happened on Sunday.
