A TEENAGER who tried to hack into Durham police’s IT network had computer equipment, mobile phones and video games consoles seized during a raid.

The 16-year-old repeatedly tried to access the system after joining an on-line hacking group, triggering a lengthy investigation.

Because the boy had not been in trouble before, police agreed not to charge him but he was taken before senior officers at the force’s headquarters to explain himself.
