Cosmetics retailer Lush, based in Poole, Dorset, has suspended online sales after being targeted by hackers.

It asked anyone who placed an online order between 4 October and 20 January to contact their bank in case their card details had been compromised.

Security monitoring showed there was still "continuing attempts" to re-enter its website.

The retailer plans to launch a temporary website initially accepting PayPal payments only.

In a tongue-in-cheek message to the hackers, the company complimented their "formidable" technical skills.

"We would like to offer you a job - were it not for the fact that your morals are clearly not compatible with ours or our customers," it added.
