29th October 2022

RUSSIAN spies hacked Liz Truss's personal phone – gaining access to top secret information, sources have claimed.

Spooks working for President Putin are believed to be behind the breach.

The hack was discovered during the summer Tory leadership campaign, when Ms Truss was Foreign Secretary.

It is understood messages that fell into Russian hands included criticisms of Mr Johnson made by Ms Truss and ex Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng.

Security sources told the Mail on Sunday up to a year's worth of messages were downloaded.
