Hackers behind a cyber-attack at Leicester City Council could be selling stolen data, an expert has warned.

Police are still investigating after the council was forced to disable its phone and computer systems on 7 March.

The council confirmed 25 documents had been posted online on 3 April, with a "much larger batch" released on Tuesday.

Ismini Vasileiou, associate professor of information systems at De Montfort University, said action is being taken.

"Hopefully, the police will be able to get at the bottom of it and be able to remove [stolen] data from the dark web," she said.
