The travel trade organisation, Abta, says a cyber attack on its website may have affected about 43,000 people.

About 1,000 files accessed may include personal identity information of individuals who have made a complaint about an Abta-registered travel agent.

It says it is contacting those affected by the hack which happened on 27 February and has a dedicated helpline.

It has also alerted the police and the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO).
