Hackers target Home Office website

The hacking group Anonymous, which has claimed responsibility for a cyber attack on the Home Office website, says it will repeat the attacks every weekend.

Anonymous Twitter messages warned of the attack on 4 April, and said: "EXPECT a DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) every Saturday on the UK Government sites."

The website became inaccessible around 21:00 BST on Saturday, and was patchy from 05:00 on Sunday.
