Two more men have been arrested in connection with a data breach at a university.

South Wales Police are investigating after the University of South Wales, which has three campuses, referred the breach to the force on 30 May.

The two men, aged 28 and 29, have been released under investigation.

A 26-year-old man from Pontypridd, Rhondda Cynon Taff, now aged 27, was arrested last month in connection with the incident.

He has also been released under investigation.

A University of South Wales spokesperson said: "The University of South Wales referred the limited data attack to South Wales Police, and took immediate action to secure its systems.

"As the incident is subject to an ongoing police investigation, it would not be appropriate to comment further."
