Morrisons’ checkout and shelf-stacking staff across the UK will be anxiously worried about their bank accounts this morning, after the supermaket admitted that thieves had spaffed employee payroll details online.

The grocer said on its Facebook page that it had notified all its workers that their personal information had been stolen and then uploaded onto a website.

It said:

As soon as we became aware of this last night we took immediate steps to ensure the data was removed from the website. It was closed down within hours of us being notified.

- This was an illegal theft of data. – It can no longer be accessed on the website. – We are liaising with the police and highest level of cyber crime authorities.

The information included names, addresses and bank account details of colleagues. This affects colleagues from all levels of the organisation.

The company is scrambling to secure its financial information, which could prove incredibly difficult given the seriousness of the data theft.

Morrisons, which has around 500 stores throughout Blighty, finally began online food deliveries only recently. It said it was working with credit report outfit Experian and the country’s biggest banks to provide support to its thousands of employees.
