Abbott

MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, speaking in response to a
report from the National Crime Agency, said:

“Criminal
gangs accessing your private details through everyday items is the stuff of
nightmares.

“Cybercrime
is a growing concern for households and businesses, but this Tory Government is
failing to provide the tools they need to protect themselves.

“Already
overstretched police forces are seeing further cuts to their government funding
while having to react to these evolving crime patterns.

“Ministers
urgently need to get a grip.”
