  • Butlin's is expecting demand for 'staycations' to rise post Brexit vote

Youth internment chain Butlin's has joined the list of shame that records mass public hackings, with the company saying that the details of around 34,000 guests have been obtained by hackers.

Customer data including names, home addresses, email addresses and phone numbers may be at risk.

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.

The firm is now contacting people who may have been affected to inform them and tell them what they should do.

The company is unsure as to how many of its 34,000 guests had their information stolen in the phishing attack and has not yet found evidence of fraudulent activity.
