Paisley: Respect family involved with TalkTalk hack

North Antrim MP Ian Paisley has appealed to the press on behalf of the family of a 15-year-old boy allegedly involved in the TalkTalk hacking case to respect their request for privacy.

The family are trying to come to terms with this situation and although they appreciate the wide public and press interest in this matter, can I appeal for the press to cease contacting the family at their home.

They cannot comment publicly and the teenager in question cannot make any public comments.

I would appeal to the press to respect the family’s request for privacy and allow the process of law and order to run its course.

– Ian Paisley MP
