Leaders Council: Sir Keir Starmer denies data breach allegations

Labour leadership candidate Sir Keir Starmer’s campaign team has dismissed claims that they hacked the Labour party's membership database as “utter nonsense”, the Leaders Council of Great Britain & Northern Ireland reports

Sir Keir’s team responded after the Labour party formally reported two of its members to the Information Commissioner’s Office, including the campaign's head of compliance.

Sir Keir himself wrote to the party to deny all allegations, adding that his team investigated a method of gaining access to the party membership database without meaning to use it.

Chair of Sir Keir’s campaign, Jenny Chapman, insisted that nobody on the team had the “capacity” to hack the party database as alleged.
