Fuel crisis: Lorry drivers unpaid after 'suspicious' cyber attack: 'Why carry on working?'

Lorry driver shortage will benefit UK in long term says Ros Atkins

Contractors including HGV drivers have been left unpaid this month after a suspected cyber attack on the software and services company Giant Group.

Workers in a number of different companies and sectors have been hit after the company detected "suspicious activity".

Giant has since stated it was the victim of a "sophisticated cyber attack" although it did not explain how the incident justified this description.

It said it has managed to pay more than 8,000 workers, but "not everyone would have received their expected pay".

They added: "We are aiming to be able to process your payroll and pay you by Friday."
