A man has been arrested on suspicion of masterminding a £1.6m cyber raid on cash machines.
A 37-year-old man is being questioned in Portsmouth for allegedly being part of an “organised gang” that loaded malware in to the dispensers in Brighton, London, Liverpool, Blackpool, Doncaster and Sheffield.
Police alleged that the cash machines were physically broken into and infected with a virus, before large amounts of cash were withdrawn. It is thought 51 machines were hit over the May Bank Holiday by criminals gaining access to the computer inside the devices and uploading a virus.
