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.
