4 BAILED IN SANDOWN BAY HACKING INVESTIGATION

4 people have been bailed until March as part of an investigation into the hacking of a computer system at Sandown Bay Academy last year. 

As previously reported by Island Echo, Hampshire Constabulary launched an investigation back in September after staff were left unable to access computer records which resulted in disruption to the day-to-day running of the school.

A 57-year-old man was arrested at the time of the incident, however a further 3 people have since been arrested and questioned on suspicion of committing offences contrary to the Computer Misuse Act 1990.
