Met Police Twitter account hacked

The Metropolitan Police's website has been targeted by hackers who posted a series of bizarre tweets from the force's official account.

Late on Friday night, a number of tweets were sent from the force's Twitter account, which has more than 1.22 million followers, calling for the release of drill rap artist Digga D.

One post, which has since been deleted, read: "We aim to make London the safest global city; Be the best crime-fighters, by any measure; Earn the trust and confidence of every community; Take pride in the quality of our service; So people love, respect and are proud of London's Met.'

Another said: "FREE DIGGA D ON FOENEM GANG." Scotland Yard said in a statement there had been no "hack" of its IT infrastructure and the security issue had only affected its MyNewsDesk account, which it uses to issue news releases.
