The former PM's, Gordon Brown's, bank account, and the medical records of his sick baby, were hacked into and the info passed on to unnamed journoes.

An Exeter detective constable, Phil Diss, was covertly performing P[olice] N[ational] C[omputer] checks, which were subsequently sold on to private investigators in bulk, for as little as £40 or even £20 a time.

Gordon Brown's office were privately warned in 2003 at the time of discovery of the illegal data checks, according to sources familiar with the case. So too were [British pols] Nick Brown and Salter.

Diss, a popular and long-serving police officer, used his official access to the PNC to supply results to his former boss, a retired police inspector, who ran a commercial investigation agency in Exmouth, servicing other private detectives across the country.
