Two friends who took part in a £77 million hack on the TalkTalk website have been jailed.
Matthew Hanley, 23, and Connor Allsopp, 21, both from Tamworth in Staffordshire, admitted their roles in the massive 2015 data breach which affected 1.6 million accounts.
Judge Dhir said the pair were "both involved in a significant, sophisticated systematic hack attack in a computer system used by TalkTalk".
