"I would like to apologise for any upset or inconvenience this incident might cause.

"A dedicated team has been set up to contact all guests who may be affected directly.

"I would like to personally reassure guests that no financial data has been compromised."

Butlin's has reported the incident to the Information Commissioner's Office.
