The Labour Party has been hit by a “sophisticated and large-scale cyber-attack” on its digital platforms.

A spokeswoman said the cyber-attack “failed” due to their “robust security systems” and the Labour Party are confident no data was breached.

She said, “We have experienced a sophisticated and large scale cyber attack on Labour digital platforms.

“We took swift action and these attempts failed due to our robust security systems. The integrity of all our platforms was maintained and we are confident that no data breach occurred.

“Our security procedures have slowed down some of our campaign activities, but these were restored this morning and we are back up to full speed.

“We have reported the matter to the National Cyber Security Centre.”
