Thieves steal Digital Britain Laptops

The UK’s Digital Inclusion Team (DIT) was digitally excluded for a while this morning after thieves broke into the team’s offices in Soho, London and stole its computers.

The DIT  is responsible for connecting around 17m Britons not yet online and led by Martha Lane Fox, who co-founded lastminute.com in the late 1990s.

The news was broken on Twitter by Digital Champion Martha Lane Fox. She tweeted: ‘O bloody hell the#digitalinclusion office has been broken into and all computers taken.

A spokesperson for Martha Lane Fox said that ‘a couple of laptops’ had been taken in the burglary.

The DIT is funded by the Department for Communities and Local Government.
