U.K. school in fresh security breach

Lucy Kenderdine reports:

Police are probing a serious information breach at an Oldham school following the internet posting of confidential student details.

More than 110 documents, including exclusion records, academic information and behaviour patterns at Hathershaw College from 2007 to 2009 were made available for anyone to download.

Photos of pupils at the Bellfield Avenue school were included in the files, which also contained detailed medical histories.

The documents have since been removed.
