Fears government agencies can listen in to private mobile phone calls at the ‘flick of a switch’ after Vodafone reveals authorities use secret wires across its entire network which stretches to 29 countries

Vodafone said direct-access wires or pipes allowed authorities to listen in
Conversations can be listened to or recorded and metadata can be tracked
Mobile phone giant released report to highlight widespread use of tapping

Direct-access pipes said to be illegal in UK because agencies need warrant
Civil rights groups described revelation as 'unprecedented and terrifying'
