Butlin's targeted by data hackers

Butlin's is expecting demand for 'staycations' to rise post Brexit vote

Hackers may have gained access to tens of thousands of guest records from holiday camp company Butlins. "I would like to personally reassure guests that no financial data has been compromised".

The holiday firm, which has a site in Bognor Regis, West Sussex, said it takes guest data seriously. I would like to apologise for any upset or inconvenience this incident might cause.

Butlin's has set up a "dedicated team" to contact guests who may have been affected.

The holiday company has insisted that no financial details were accessed in the breach.

A spokesperson confirmed to Sky News that the compromise had taken place over the past 72 hours, and was believed to be caused by a phishing email.

Media captionTechnology explained: What is phishing?

Ms Paulley added that human error was the "greatest single point of weakness" in organisations' security.

The company, where staff used to welcome guests with the phrase "hi-de-hi" until it was banned in the 1980s, now operates holiday camps in Bognor Regis, Minehead and Skegness, with the latter being the first camp opened by Billy Butlin in 1936.

Butlins have reported the incident to the Information Commissioners Office, but investigations have not found any fraudulent activity related to this event.
