Two people suspected of creating a malicious web program have been released on police bail.

The pair had been arrested in a combined operation by the FBI and the UK's National Hi-Tech Crime Unit.

The raids in Darlington and Durham in the UK resulted in the seizure of two men accused of being members of a group that calls itself THr34t-Krew.

The two have to return to Darlington police station on 3 April.
