The Cabinet Office said it believes "one or two" individuals are behind "sickening" amendments made to the Wikipedia page on the Hillsborough disaster from Government computers, but said it could be "challenging" to identify the culprits.
A Cabinet Office spokesman said:
The amendments made to Wikipedia are sickening. We are treating this matter with the utmost seriousness. Our first priority is to establish the facts and to examine the issues raised. Once we have the facts, we will update Parliament with the findings and consider further appropriate action.
At this time, we have no reason to suspect that the Hillsborough edits involve any particular department, nor more than one or two individuals in 2009 and 2012.
As the first incident happened five years ago and there are hundreds of thousands of people on the Government's network, it may prove challenging to identify who was involved. But we are exhausting every option.
