Vodafone gave journalists data to police

  • Vodafone gave police phone data on 1,757 staff working for News Corporation's UK subsidiary, News UK.
  • Vodafone said the handover of data was a mistake; police had asked for data of just one News UK journalist. 
  • Data containing phone logs was sent in March ; mistake highlighted at the end of June. 
  • Police have not deleted the information they received; said to have created a spreadsheet of the phone log data.
