A picture of Miliband appeared, along with the words "Vote Labour"

The Wikipedia pages of David Cameron, Nigel Farage and Caroline Lucas were hacked this afternoon, to show a picture of Ed Miliband with the legend "Vote Labour".

As UK voters used social media to tell the world how they were voting, hackers broke into the world's largest information resource in an effort to sway their vote.

The red page, with an image of Ed Miliband, was all that showed up as you scrolled down the page.

Although the pages were restored to their former glory shortly after the hack was noticed in the middle of the afternoon, by 4.30pm no-one had claimed responsibility.
