A government department has reassured no secrets were revealed after a national newspaper claimed an RAF Marham servicewoman allegedly had a private account hacked.

The MOD issued a statement in the wake of national publicity which claimed the woman’s online dating app Tinder was hacked and she was asked a confidential question.

An RAF spokesman said: “No F-35 secrets have been stolen, as a headline inaccurately claims. 

“No F-35 information of a sensitive or classified nature has been disclosed via a dating site. 

“The member of RAF personnel involved is not even associated with the F-35 programme.”

The first of Britain’s new F-35 Lightning fighter jets (pictured) arrived in West Norfolk in June, with a further five touching down last Friday, taking the total number of the fighter jets based at Marham to nine.
