Digital Britain PCs stolen

Computers in the offices of the team behind the Digital Britain report have been taken by thieves. The Soho office was broken into overnight and all computers stolen.

The irony, of course, is that the one section of the report is tasked with getting computers to people in Britain who aren't on the Web already. In a recent BBC interview, the government's Digital Champion, Martha Lane Fox - who founded lastminute.com in 1998 - said that she was concentrating on the 6 million poorest "nonliners".

She posted a message on microblogging site Twitter saying: "O bloody hell the #digitalinclusion office has been broken into and all computers taken :((". However, a spokesperson would only confirm that "a couple of laptops had been stolen".
