London police Twitter blares ‘F*CK THE POLICE’ in apparent hack
“F**K THE POLICE FREE DA GANG!! #CHUCKLINGHELLA” the unknown hackers posted on Twitter at 23:32 British summer time (1046 GMT) on Friday.
Around the same time, the same message – and several others – appeared as an official press release on the Met Police website.
More than a dozen messages have been posted so far. The hashtag appears to be a video game reference.
"We are aware that the @metpoliceuk has been subject to unauthorised access and our media team are working hard to delete the messages and ensure the security of the account," a police spokesman told reporters. "Please ignore any Tweets until we verify that it is back under official control."
