ID fears on theft of PC; SECURITY.

A LAPTOP containing the bank details and personal information of 8,500 Brits has been stolen in Italy.

The details - which include salaries, national insurance numbers and addresses - belonged to staff at courier firm UPS.

The laptop, which was stolen four weeks ago, was password protected.

But workers were still sent a letter yesterday urging them to check their accounts. They were also given online protection.

UPS insisted there was no risk of fraud, but one employee said: "No one can know what repercussions this could have."
