An MP was "devastated" after his Facebook account was hacked and rogue messages sent to over 1,500 of his friends...

on the site.

Michael Fabricant, MP for Lichfield, clicked on a message saying "Look at this" that took him to a page containing malware.

The message was then sent to all his friends, and Facebook blocked his account.

He said, "I am devastated. This has never happened to me before and I can only apologise."

He changed his password and emailed Facebook after the hacking, which happened last week. His account was back up and running today.
