More than 24,000 people in Hull and Leicester have had information about
them stolen, it has been revealed.
Training company A4e said the data was held on a personal computer of an
employee which was stolen in "an opportunistic domestic burglary".
A4e said the laptop, that was taken on 19 June in London, did not contain
banking or credit information.
The company is examining how its data security procedures were breached so
it can ensure it does not occur again.
A4e delivers public services across a range of sectors, including
employment and welfare, training and education and debt and legal advice.
The stolen laptop contained names, postcodes, dates of birth and any
possible awards made by a court.
