    Dixons Carphone has said a huge data breach that took place last year involved 10 million customers, up from its original estimate of 1.2 million.

    The Carphone Warehouse and Currys PC World owner has been investigating the hack since it was discovered in June.

    It said personal information, names, addresses and email addresses may have been accessed last year.

    However, no bank details were taken and it had found no evidence that fraud had resulted from the breach.
