Apologies for my previous apology. Though the Bear, in the strictest sense of the word was not a 'hacker', it is however true that the Bear that you see in the cave in 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' is wearing a wire. This is because the Bear is a Police Bear.
I can also now state - and I deeply regret not having made this clear earlier - that the Bear was on several occasions lent to members of the Department for Education at no cost to them.
However, that said, I'm not sure why this is the business of anyone. It was a private matter between me, the police, the government, News International and the Bear.
