None recently, but I am aware that the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) robustly prosecutes crimes committed using computers or other devices (including mobile phones) and last year they trained a number of prosecutors specifically on prosecuting cybercrime. The CPS has also developed further general training in this area which will be available to all its prosecutors later this year.
