Police in Northern Ireland face questions over data breach

Senior police leaders in Northern Ireland are facing questions later (Thursday) about a major data breach. Chief Constable Simon Byrne has cut short a holiday to be questioned by politicians in Belfast. The details of 10,000 officers and staff were published online in error on Tuesday. Cyber Security Expert Ira Winkler says there are lots of reasons a leak like this could be dangerous for some officers.
