'Terror Line' hacking fear

A teenager eavesdropped on highly-sensitive police counter-terror conversations after bypassing technology from the 1980s, hackers claimed today.

The leader of an anarchist group known as Team Poison said it was "easy" to drop "a 24-hour phone bomb" on elite security officers.

Scotland Yard is understood to have been hit with more than 700 calls before an American-sounding caller, using the name Trick, told them they were being "pranked."

Detectives said "appropriate action would be taken" as a number of recordings were posted on YouTube by Team Poison.
