Information written on a bus shelter about three cops has prompted an investigation.

Information about three active-duty police officers from Northern Ireland was allegedly posted on a bus shelter in Co. Londonderry.

The Thursday night incident on Dungiven’s Chapel Road is currently under investigation.
This comes after a massive data breach last month, in which the personal information of about 10,000 officers and employees was accidentally made public.

“We have contacted those involved to make them aware and recognize the impact this may have on them and their families,” Assistant Chief Constable Chris Todd said.
