LIST OF 100 HACKING FIRMS GIVEN TO MPS IS ‘THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG’

Press getting worked up about this issue as the Leveson inquiry has concentrated on their invasions of privacy.

POLICE APOLOGISE FOR ‘HARASSMENT’ OF FORENSIC GRADUATE

Repeat after me: “you have nothing to fear if you are innocent”. Complete abuse of power by police officers, preventing a young woman from getting a job as a result of them harassing her and putting their harassment on the databases such that she turns up as a problem on a CRB check…and they STILL havent removed stuff from the necessary databases, despite admitting disciplining the oficers and apologising. Full story was in Private Eye. Smears followed in other parts of the press.
