Metropolitan Police Service statement in response to 'terror line' hacking claim

Ailsa Beaton, Director Of Information for the Metropolitan Police said:

"We have throughout the day researched the allegation that the Anti-Terrorist Hotline had been 'hacked' and 'activists' claims that they were able to listen unrestricted to confidential communications.

"We are confident the MPS communication systems have not been breached and remain, as they always have been, secure.

"We are satisfied that any recording would have been made via the receiving handset only and not from an attack on internal systems.

"The public can remain confident in the ability to communicate in confidence and that the integrity of the Anti-Terrorist Hotline remains in place."
