BEX ALERT - Britain blames China's secret service for campaign of 'significant' cyber attacks that tried to steal business secrets by hacking into global firms based in Europe, Asia and the US

Britain today sensationally blamed China for a campaign of global cyber attacks aimed at stealing business secrets from the UK and allied countries.

Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt blamed Beijing for the 'one of the most significant' cyber attacks ever made against the UK and its allies.

The 'sustained' campaign has tried to steal secrets from global companies based in Europe, Asia and the United States.

British spies have assessed 'with the highest level of probability' that China is to blame for the hacking of corporate giants - warning the attempts to breach security are 'almost certainly' continuing.

Mr Hunt demanded the Chinese offensive action 'stop', warning they breach international agreements made at the G20.
