MEPs condemn Facebook after data breach

Earlier this year, Channel 4 News and the Observer revealed allegations that the now-closed data firm Cambridge Analytica was behind a data grab of tens of millions of Facebook profiles.

This week, members of the European Parliament vote on a report recommending new measures in response to the scandal.

Today, MEPs condemned the social network, with Labour claiming that disinformation, data theft and voter manipulation remain a risk unless the EU takes action.
