The www.southyorks.police.uk address featured a page with the message: “Hacked by no-Fawk-al Kuq e zi.”
Another line says: “Behind every success there is a story” and a video clip shows footage of the Albanian football team and their supporters.
It then changed with a message appearing which said: “no worry no data was leaked or deleted, simple a deface page was uploaded..update your drupal version
Website Currently Under Construction Albanian Hackers.”
However South Yorkshire tweeted this afternoon confirming that the website had been restored.
