UK investigators search London office of firm at centre of Facebook data storm

UK investigators search London office of firm at centre of Facebook data stormInvestigators from Britain’s data watchdog on Friday searched the London offices of Cambridge Analytica, the data analytics firm at the centre of a storm over allegations it improperly harvested Facebook data to target U.S. voters. About 20 officials, wearing black jackets with “ICO Enforcement” on them, arrived at the firm’s central London offices soon after a High Court judge granted a search warrant sought by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). The officials, who were let into the building by security guards, could be seen checking books and papers through the windows of the second-floor offices on London’s busy New Oxford Street, a Reuters witness said.
