All parts of the site were damaged by a hacker sometime late last week. All pages in the main website were deleted and SpeakerTalk, the members' area, and other functional facilities had essential elements deleted or damaged.

It would appear that the intention of the hacker was to set up a portal for phishing emails. The unsuspecting recipients of the emails were confronted by a spoof Lloyds bank site set up on this site. This was dealt with as soon as it was detected.

I think that the site has now been fully restored. It would be appreciated if you would let me know of any problems.
