Companies across the globe are reporting that they have been struck by a major ransomware cyber-attack.

British advertising agency WPP is among those to say its IT systems have been disrupted as a consequence.

The virus, the source of which is not yet known, freezes the user's computer until a ransom in untraceable Bitcoin is paid.

Ukrainian firms, including the state power company and Kiev's main airport, were among the first to report issues.
