A new centre to protect the UK against cyber-attacks is to be officially opened by the Queen later.

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) in London is designed to improve Britain's resilience to attacks and act as an operational nerve centre. “We want to make the UK the hardest target,” Ciaran Martin, the centre's chief executive, told the BBC.

There were 188 attacks classed by the NCSC as Category Two or Three during the last three months.
