A DATA leak endangering oil workers was committed by undercover environmental activists, it has been claimed.

The Evening Express told how a database containing more than 100,000 personal details about Shell employees and contractors was leaked from the oil firm.

A 116-strong group claiming to be full-time Shell employees – some of whom could be working in Aberdeen – have claimed responsibility for the data leak.

And the group claims the Shell database leak was an organised “inside job” to highlight alleged human rights abuses in oil-rich Nigeria.
